world cloud generated from participants' answers to the question of who is often left out of landscape consensus-building and decision-making processes

Participants' answers

  • My experience is that e.g. participation process often involves acadmic and middle-class residents
  • Farmers affected by wild boar damage. They were left out of the decision over the change in hunting laws that was meant to address the wildlife management issues. Two reasons. Lobbyists were consulted and the authorities did not consult those affected
  • landscape maintenance workers
  • people that work in an area, they are there most of the day, so therefore most of their life, but never consider in having the say; or arae involved
  • children are out of landscape consensus-building
  • Young individuals (under 23) are generally considerend as 'unworthy' to debate with about important landscape cnahnges and decisions
  • Young people- because their are not expected to understand
  • those who suffer from a language barrier
  • multitasking parents who never have time to get involved with the usual suspects - leads to an unwelcoming environment for kids in many places
  • young families with children under 5
  • From my experience older generations are partially left out from partecipatory processes
  • Actually I don't know because I don't have enough experience about participation process
  • Trendsetters. People who we look upon as non-experts
  • people who are not expert and pass from everything easily specially about public space
  • Primary and secondary school students are not engaged in the decision-making processes for open space in my town. The meeting environment does not work well with their schedules and often intimidates the young students to attend from participating.
  • young people
  • I think often concerned and affected citizens are left out of landscape consensus - building processes because hierarchical thinking in the administration is still dominating the planning processes unfortunately
  • homeless (2)
  • crazy people
  • urban mafia - invisible suspects; building of new hotel along water-pressure to the urban sector( corruption) for a permission to build, whereas ecologists, ngo's, citizens etc. protested against
  • the people who live near the planning object are mostly not included - because the state or land or region or city don't ask them. They might be dangerous because they don't share the opinion of the leaders.
  • people
