Abstract:

When discussing ecological and historic concerns in rural landscapes, different people relate differently to several key concepts: cultural landscape, protection value and criteria, utility, modernisation, landscape types and history. There is a need for communication between insiders and outsiders in relation to everyday landscapes. Existentialistic geography may be a good vantage point and a viable road towards further understanding between different groups. What is needed is a 'geography of the heart', not only 'of the head', a geography built on personal meetings, self-reflexivity and concern, avoiding abstraction away from concrete life situations.
