The landscape of a nature park is not a relic landscape but a living cultural landscape. The paper questions the conformity of the landscape in the regional nature park of the Attert valley. It analyses more specifically (1) the conformity to the natural environment and the economic context, (2) the conformity from a semiotic or cultural point of view, and (3) the recognition and the management of the landscape as heritage. It states that few landscape features are preserved from the past. Nevertheless the landscape of the Attert valley maintains an identity due to old settlements, and the influence of the natural environment. The rural policy of renovation since 1970, together with the regional nature park activities, and the coming landscape Charter are useful tools to manage the landscape. However, these tools experience trouble with restraining the increase of real-estate due to the proximity of the Great Duchy of Luxembourg. [less ▲]

Although tools and methods are of major importance for territorial intelligence, each action research begins with the creation of a network of actors and researchers. How to do it? Which strategies are the most efficient and ethically acceptable? The paper analyses how stakeholders of a public place were joined to work together on a new approach of management and use of a certain public place. It compares the different networking strategies used in five case studies of the Topozym action-research. [less ▲]

The paper underlines the diversity of the motivations of second homes owners and replaces this diversity in the new ways of living the countryside. The analysis of the distribution of second homes in Belgium may be enlightening by a Multiple Regression Model combining the subjective quality of environment and the home prices. From this step, the research analyses the diversity of the strategies of localisation in Ardennes and quests for the diversity of appropriation. In place of the common idea of regional space consumption by the Dutch holidaymakers, the paper underlines the involvement of “strangers” in the local community and compares these involvements with those from the other inhabitants like commuters and crossborder workers.

Wind Turbines seem for many people to be an intrusive change in the cultural landscape especially in countryside (Pasqualetti). The Lacsawep research project aims to analyse and asses the landscape capacity and social attitudes toward wind energy parks in Belgium. Two complementary research lines are developed. On the one hand, a representative survey is done in order to understand the way people valorise landscape in relation to the location of wind energy. On the other hand, the research looks for the background and the underlying in-depth process explaining attitudes and possible “NIMBY-ism” toward energy park. The paper focuses on the attitudes relating to five wind parks in different areas in Belgium. The first case studies underline one interesting concept to understand the acceptation of wind turbines in local landscape: the “reterritorialisation”. People may accept a scar in their landscape if the turbines work “symbolically” for their needs. The paper analyses what people means by landscape, and how they are ready to barter a part of their landscape capital for a local effort to reduce the ecological footprint. [less ▲]

The new ruralism is both a new concept developed by researchers, especially in California, and a marketing stuff improved by the new vision of the rurality by a broad segment of the American population. The new ruralism results from the conjunction of the smart growth trend and the researches on sustainable agriculture. The paper comments the state of the art and the first projects based on new ruralism. It scrutinizes the impact on the countryside and challenges the contemporary rural geography. [less ▲]

The paper presents the way a framework for (self-)assessment to improve the sustainability of practices in public places and spaces was created during the first months of the Topozym action research. It underlines obstacles encountered and solutions found by a multidisciplinary team in creating this tool. Based on this critical self-analysis, the difficulties of putting the theoretical ideas on action research in practice are discussed. [less ▲]

By a study of the rural ways of living, the paper analyses the dynamics of the countryside around Rome from a residential point of view. It describes the people and their expectations of the countryside. It suggests five types of ways of living the countryside. It stresses that the lack of land and planning policy leads to a dismantling of rural communities. Finally, the analysed communes are classified according to a typology of countryside (agricultural countryside, fragile countryside, suburban countryside, and living countryside). The analysis demonstrates the high spatial variability of the suburban countryside, especially when they are analysed at the village level. [less ▲]

The territorial sensitivities method was proposed as a tool to collect senses of places and meanings of landscape features. It was presented as an alternative of the traditional participation process to take into account the inhabitants’ meanings in physical planning projects. The method is based on the comparison of an “objective” inventory of localisable changes and those collected in the speech of the inhabitants. Analysing which changes are mentioned but also which ones are absent contributes to grasp the places appropriation. After a short presentation of the method, the paper asks about the acceptability of this one in the context of the territorial intelligence. Is it suitable to join non participative empathic methods in the set of tools of the territorial intelligence? [less ▲]
