Managing outdoor environments – knowledge of management, influence and quality for better cities

Managing outdoor environments is a big but anonymous activity. The project aims at compiling knowledge about management to be implemented in teaching and practices in landscape architecture, architecture, physical planning, etc., primarily in Sweden but also internationally. By producing a proficient textbook on managing outdoor environments work is underway to reverse the trend, where managing outdoor environments is neglected today as a professional activity with ensuing recruiting problems and lack of development, to a positive development where invested resources add value.
