How can wilderness conservation and planning become more inclusive?
In June, a British research team; Alice Eldridge (University of Sussex), Roger Norum (University of Leeds) and Jonathan Carruthers-Jones (University of Leeds), visited CIRC and Abisko with their new research project on participatory mapping, involving mountain walks with a wide range of participants and their views on wild spaces, species and mountain landscapes. The intent of the project is to help to make more representative and inclusive maps of mountain areas that can be integrated with other ecological data and ultimately used in planning and conservation. The project is founded by INTERACT.
