The landscape as a cultural phenomenon has become an important subject of the research due to a change in societal awareness about the problems in human environment. Landscapes, especially cultural landscapes, are no longer considered as something given, something developed spontaneously. They have become the subject of direct human interest and by this also the subject of conscious management and planning. Two aspects, landscape as the subject of human interest and landscape as the subject of planning are two basic points of departure that define the content of this research program. The first goal of the research is to improve the understanding of those landscape components and landscape processes that regulate the preservation and development of what is natural and what is cultural within the landscape. The emphasis will be given to the Slovenian landscapes. The second important goal is to define landscape heritage as a national value and as an expression of human creativity. Establishing these goals means also that an important part of the research is to develop methods of landscape planning and physical planning and to promote knowledge of the Slovenian landscape heritage. The link between the landscape and physical planning is determined by the fact that actual physical planning, due to the requirement that human interventions in the physical environment should be as sustainable as possible, shares ideas that have been developed within landscape planning.
Significance for science
Upgrading of traditional interdisciplinary approach (linking between different areas of science) in trans-disciplinary is the main science value of our research group activities. Synergies with other social areas such as the arts, engineering, and public/political operation make our research methods wider and more complementary. Interrelation with other rationalities enables critical reflection of generally accepted scientific rationality and search for innovative solutions; in ontologic as well as epistemic sense.
Significance for the country
On national level the socio-economic value of the program is mainly in the direct application of methodological proposals into planning practice carried out already as part of research methodology. Between the results we expect is also improvement in the evaluation of public policies and thereby greater quality of spatial planning and design practice. Contribution in these areas has economic importance (small external costs and greater public benefits in the long term). Social importance is also reflected in greater awareness of cultural landscapes values and quality of living environment (on professional and public level). This awareness ensures the long-term sustainable development of society and has an important impact on national identity.
