This event is open to:

General Public

In another session focusing on the cultural benefits that nature provides to people, panelists will present novel approaches to studying and characterizing land-based cultural services. For example, forest-dwellers, fishers, and birdwatchers’ identities all depend on forests, fish, and birds respectively. We also derive recreational benefits from nature and develop place attachment to certain landscape and seascape characteristics. With examples from farmland in Europe and biological corridors in China and Tanzania, we will discuss participatory methods for characterizing and mapping cultural ecosystem services related to land.
