Book description

Improving the dynamic relationship between nature and human well-being is a pressing issue of our time. Landscapes embody this tight interconnectedness and serve as unique sustainability learning hubs, showcased by the global rise of place-based and holistic landscape stewardship initiatives. Incorporating these exciting developments, this book explores the principles of landscape stewardship and their function in fields such as agriculture, ecological restoration and urban green infrastructure. It provides insights into the challenges and the potential of landscape stewardship and identifies future paths for the science and practice of landscape-related sustainability efforts. Aligning analytical perspectives with practical applications, it brings together contributions from leading scholars and innovative models of landscape stewardship from all around the world, making it an essential resource for anyone interested in developing sustainable human-nature relationships.


'Landscape stewardship, nurturing the places where humans live and work, is the heart of sustainability. This pioneering book presents the intellectual framework for research and practical applications of landscape stewardship. It is critical reading for everyone concerned with place-based work for social-ecological systems.'

Steve Carpenter - University of Wisconsin, Madison

'This book is the first comprehensive synthesis of the scientific foundations and practical implementation of landscape stewardship. Moving from concepts to practice, this outstanding volume acknowledges and celebrates the diversity of human-nature relationships and the multitude of understandings of landscape stewardship. It represents a pioneering and refreshing contribution that will help us to transit towards sustainability.'

Berta Martín-López - Leuphana University, Lüneburg, Germany

Europe, Asia and many other parts of the world host valuable landscapes that have evolved through intensive long-term interaction between humans and nature. The Science and Practice of Landscape Stewardship provides evidence of an emerging trend toward bottom-up, multi-stakeholder collaboration in the management of these landscapes. Cutting-edge scholarly thinking and innovative case studies from land-use practice make this thoughtful and engaging volume a must-read for anyone interested in the future of cultural landscapes.'

Kazuhiko Takeuchi - United Nations University and University of Tokyo, Japan
