Feeling "Secrety": Children's Views on Involvement in Landscape Decisions
Roe, Maggie
Environmental Education Research, v13 n4 p467-485 Sep 2007
This paper focuses on a case study pilot project working with a small group of children aged 6- to 10-years-old in a village in the northeast of England. The study was established to examine children's attitudes to environmental issues, particularly their involvement in environmental decisions and their feelings about planning, design and management of neighbourhood landscapes. This paper discusses findings in relation to children's views on participation and landscape decisions. There was a strong feeling that their local landscapes were not planned or managed in favour of children, that children had a potentially valuable contribution to make and they were willing to voice opinions given the chance. The paper reflects on these findings, particularly the success of the mosaic methodology used in relation to the difficulties and ethics of carrying out exploratory research in participatory projects. (Contains 4 figures and 7 notes.)
