Session Language E
Scope This session has been functioning as a forum to discuss and share information on what "landscape" is, how people experience it physiologically and psychologically, what meaning the experienced landscape gives to people and how it is reflected in their behavior, and how human attributes affect the perception and evaluation of landscape. On the other hand, during the recent pandemic caused by the COVID-19, it has been reported worldwide that people who were restricted to stay at home rushed to parks, green spaces, waterfront and forests, which are less densely populated, to enjoy the natural scenery and recreational activities such as walking, cycling, and camping. In response to these social trends, we thought that we could provide a forum for further discussion on the role of "landscape" by actively sharing examples of various "recreational" activities in natural areas. Therefore, this session will be held with the aim of sharing and discussing surveys, case studies, etc. of "landscape and recreation" evaluation in various fields such as geography, geomorphology, landscape planning, forest science, architecture, civil engineering, social engineering, social science, environmental psychology, meteorology, and bio-seasonal studies.
