Kulturlandschaft gemeinsam verstehen – Praktische Beispiele der Landschaftssozialisation aus dem Schweizer Alpenraum
Within the research field of landscape perception new approaches have been developed and applied on different scales in Switzerland. Agriculture still has a huge impact on the appearance of cultural landscape. The project Kulturlandschaft gemeinsam verstehen investigates the perception among farmers and is focusing on regional differences. Therefore problem-centred interviews have been conducted in two case study areas during an on-site walk with farmers. Regarding the theory of landscape socialisation participative and mediation processes in the realm of landscape values have been considered. The results point out a differentiated perception of cultural landscape within the two case study areas and show that an active inclusion of farmers has a positive impact on the landscape perception.
