Energy Landscapes Conference
The Landscape Research Group was involved in the organisation of a European conference on Energy Landscapes: Perception, Planning, Participation and Power, held in September 2015, in Dresden, Germany. Further information about the conference can be found here. Key questions addressed by the conference were:
- Perception – How is the character, perception, assessment and social construction of landscapes influenced by present and past uses of energy?
- Planning – Which types of landscape-related planning and governance regimes exist and how are they linked to landscape planning, spatial planning and energy policy?
- Participation – In the face of energy transitions, to what extent are landscape policies inclusive and participatory? Which actors are involved and who is constituted as an actor in this regard?
- Power – Which power relations shape the interplay of energies and landscapes? How can the workings of power be conceptualised and critically reflected?
