  • 1. Environmental values in peri-urban landscapes Angela Wardell-Johnson
  • 2. Peri-urban landscapes   Are a complex zone providing sources of innovation and diversity These communities provide innovation and adaptive capacity • through the interactions of social capital • knowledge diversity Maintaining a balance of landscape values through context and place-based sense of place
  • 3. This presentation…   Provides an overview of results from a survey of people living in peri-urban SEQ Addresses questions on relationships between: environmental ideals, ideology and practice • in relation to property activities and property size
  • 4. The catchments… Noosa Cooroy Palmwoods Hunchy Ningi Pumicestone Lockyer Laidley Upper Bremmer Rocky Point Beaudesert Mackenzie, Whelan et al. 2006. Emu Creek

  • 7. Q: environmental ideals, ideology and practice: in relation to property activities and property size A stratified ontology • Ideals • Personal & individual  Discourse frameworks • • Ideology • • Practice • • Collective & shared • Intersection of ideals • • & ideology Based on experience Draws on history & memory • Agents and their motives • • Who are the agents? What are the framing structures? Metaphors and Rhetoric • What strategies and devices are used to convince others?

  • 13. A: environmental ideals, ideology and practice  Property size acts as a predictor • for environmental discourse value frameworks • for the solutions to environmental planning in diverse landscape and land use values  long term viability of commercial agriculture in the proximity of the SEQ metropolis hinges on • The divide between people who live on larger • properties those who live on small properties (less then 10ha)
  • 14. Role of values  Values and landscapes values •  Diversity of value frameworks • • •  role in defining enterprise, landscape health assessment and institutional frameworks representative of complex peri-urban social landscape potentially integrating knowledge systems through social processes value frames support shift from multi-framings to a fusion, adaptive capacity mix of production and environmental care to integrate across the landscape beyond individual properties
  • 15. Conclusions    The integration of social values in planning is critical to maintain biological and food security and ultimately systemic resilience Effective integration of resource management and social planning requires focus on context SEQ epitomises a rich and diverse community with social values well beyond the traditional life-styler – farmer divide
  • 16. Acknowledgements      The initiative to conduct this research  lies with Professor Janelle Allison (then of UQ, and now of UTAS) and the late Professor Geoff McDonald (UQ and CSIRO). The Post Doctoral Fellowship was jointly funded through Peter Thorburn (CSIRO) who provided consistent advice, input and support through a cheerful office space and colleagues.  Gillian Colclough served as a keen observer and capable research associate  Support and funds from: The Qld Gov Office of Urban Management and SEQ Catchments, Noel Vock of DPI&F Brian Stockwell and his team at DPI&F provided vital interaction, insights and knowledge Many staff members from local governments in the areas gave their information and time freely and Community members and local environmental NGO staff helped with snowball sampling and local directions Uniquest staff at UQ, particularly Gary Heyden and Scott Visser was vital in getting the research completed Funds for conference attendance were provided by the School of Social Sciences, USC.
