Article
Full-text available
Environmental values depend on social-ecological interactions and, in turn, influence the production of the underlying biophysical ecosystems. Understanding the nuanced nature of the values that humans ascribe to the environment is thus a key frontier for environmental science and planning. The development of many of these values depends on social-...
Article
Full-text available
Sustainable urban and metropolitan planning is increasingly benefiting from differentiated assessments of ecosystem services. Cultural ecosystem services (CES) are particularly relevant for urban residents’ mental and physical health, yet, quantification and mapping of CES are often challenging, especially so in the Global South. The use of social...
Book
Le questioni legate alle cosiddette aree interne acquisiscono un rilievo sempre maggiore nel dibattito accademico e politico. I temi dell’ambiente e delle culture locali sono una chiave di lettura prioritaria e distintiva, proprio in virtù della loro pervasività e del ruolo che assumono nel determinarne i caratteri identitari e le specificità terri...
Article
Full-text available
Rural areas are rich in cultural and natural heritage , local traditions and productions, but at the same time they face demographic and socio-economic challenges that bring to depopulation, ageing, disengagement, reduced service provision and inhibited accessibility. To counter this process , several initiatives have been raised, and the debate ar...
Article
The extent to which new greening initiatives contribute to gentrification processes in urban areas is of rising interest to researchers and policymakers, but the precise (and often intangible) aspects of green spaces that embed them within gentrification processes are not well understood. The Cultural Ecosystem Services (CES) literature offers new...
Presentation
Rural areas hold most of the cultural natural heritage of our societies. However, the economic and social changes of the last century (e.g. industrialization and urbanization) have resulted in a progressive decline in the attractiveness and values ascribed to rural areas. The promotion of rural natural capital and the deriving cultural ecosystem se...
Article
Full-text available
There is a deeply relational aspect to the systems people employ for sorting through and prioritizing plural values assigned to social–ecological interactions. Spurred by interpersonal relationships and adhesion to societal core values, such as justice and reciprocity, relational values go beyond instrumental and intrinsic approaches to understandi...
Article

This paper concludes a special feature of Sustainability Science that explores a broad range of social value theoretical traditions , such as religious studies, social psychology, indigenous knowledge, economics, sociology, and philosophy. We introduce a novel transdisciplinary conceptual framework that revolves around concepts of 'lenses' and 'ten...

Article
Full-text available
The ecosystem services concept is increasingly gaining momentum in land-use policies and landscape planning. Yet, cultural ecosystem services often lack proper assessments. With this study, we use novel methodological approaches to map the cultural ecosystem service landscape aesthetics for its enhanced consideration in land-use policies. Our study...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Since the early 2000s, when the term "sharing economy" started spreading, it has gained momentum worldwide, in cities of every size and among people with different social cultures and practices. Today, the sharing economy is seen to comprise a big share of a growing market that is expected to increase exponentially in the near future. Digital techn...

Thesis
The ecosystem services (ES) concept is quickly gaining importance in policy and planning. Yet, cultural ecosystem services (CES) are complex to map and operationalize in landscape planning because they emerge from dynamic human-environment interactions and their value to humans is mediated through subjective perceptions and personal backgrounds. Th...
