[en] Which factors heighten sensitivity to environmental changes? The answer to this question is of interest to everyone who acts on the environment. However, methods and concepts still need to be explored before a geography of sensibility could respond to this deman. This paper presens the methodological contributions and results of an exploratory study of the sensibilities of 65 residents of a Belgian rural municipality. Factors related to the environmental change, to the individual and to the relantionship between the individual and place are analysed.
