Els valors culturals i espirituals de la natura: més enllà dels aspectes materials de la diversitat
Callado, Nieves; Sanosa, Pau2013
Reviewing the planning and management models that have been developed over the past decades, it is clear that scientific and technical considerations have achieved almost complete acceptance. Nevertheless, natural and biodiversity conservation do still have a strong sociocultural component; for time immemorial mankind has established multiple ties with its environment, enriched over time by the groups that use it. In addition, positive relationships have been identified between biological and cultural diversity, inviting us thus to consider all traditional worldviews, as well as the cultural and spiritual values associated with nature, biodiversity and landscape. In the West, this is one of the most innovative management and conservation techniques and will allow for a complete understanding of our complex biological and cultural system via the incorporation of the human dimension and the move towards possible sustainable scenarios.
