Task description

Based on your theoretical reflection of the multifaceted relationship between landscape and democracy you are invited to identify landscape democracy challenges in your everyday environment. This can be a recent or planned project that raised public concern or a broad social, economic or environmental driving force affecting your landscape at various scales and related to two or three of UN's 17 sustainable development Goals.

The solution part will be covered in the last assignment.
