Cross-cutting theme 2: Landscape and Economy
LNI coordinator: Maria Beatrice Andreucci
Landscapes are constantly creating economic values, not only with regard to ecosystem services. We are all aware of the multiple benefits provided by our green blue infrastructure but we rarely tackle conflicts and convergences implied in decision-making. In particular, the economic benefits provided should be explored paying attention to their multiple dimensions, as an example the number of jobs created is very different from the real estate value increase deriving from the new Green Infrastructure. The theme will use ‘conflicts and convergences of the Anthropocene’ as a guiding image for all working groups.
