Case study- Building Bridges to Sustainability: when Arts and Culture meet Tourism
Lanzarote: Lanzarote raises awareness and promotes sustainability in the destination using artistic interventions, through the singular vision of Cesar Manrique, where arts and nature coexist in perfect harmony. Conscious of the unique originality of the island landscape, César Manrique promoted an ambitious creative project of intervention in the territory, whose main axis is the preservation and conservation of the environment and culture. The relationship between art and nature is described through interventions in harmony with the territory and the landscape of a sensitive insular space as Lanzarote.
