It's important to us that the Just Scapes project directly benefits the locations and local communities in the Czech Republic, France and Scotland. With this in mind, we're sharing our findings with policy and academic networks to improve policy development and promote scientific and social impacts, both nationally and internationally.
A key part of the Just Scapes process were our transdisciplinary, multi-stakeholder ‘Just Transformation Labs’. Linked to ongoing policy consultations in each of the three areas, these labs involved shared visioning exercises to help develop manifestos for just landscape transformations.
You can read our Guidelines for Socially Just Landscape Restoration in the Scottish Highlands here. The manifesto was written-up by Adrian Martin, David Brown and Janet Fisher, in consultation with the Affric-Kintail landscape vision working group.
The French and Czech manifestos will be published soon.
We're currently putting together all the texts written by the participants in our three creative writing workshops in Scotland, France and the Czech Republic into an anthology document, translated into all three languages.
We'll share the document here - and more widely - once it's ready.
As part of Just Scapes, we're also running a large-scale survey in all three of our case studies area. The Czech survey is now complete and the French and Scottish surveys are underway.
Watch this space for the results.
We're in the process of analysing and writing up our findings from Just Scapes. There are a few papers on the way, and we'll update this space once they're published.
