Romanian picnic regulation - the landscape sustainability gaps

Published in Scientific Papers. Series B. Horticulture, Vol. LVI
Written by Alexandru Paul LAZĂR-BARA

Law 54 adopted by the Romanian Parliament in 2012 was meant to regulate public space picnic activities, in order to mitigate public health and environmental impacts associated to this traditional middle class leisure. This paper identifies the gaps between the present law and the sustainable approach of picnic in national context, from a landscape architect’s integrative perspective. The analysis premise is landscape valuation, which picnic should naturally rely on – though the term ‘landscape’ is missing from the text of the law. First, a general concept is suggested, that connects all the complex systems involved in picnic activity; a set of principles deriving out of the concept is then identified. Foreign related regulations are presented along their implementation context and the effects they have on socio-ecologic systems. The principles of landscape valuation through picnic are then confronted with the Romanian law and with the foreign regulations selection. Results show the gaps between landscape sustainability key-lines and the law formula, indicating also alternative approaches from other countries. The conclusions show the need to integrate landscape architects in society on multiple levels, in order to enhance policy sustainability, administration effectiveness and management quality.
