Abstract

How landscapes are conceived affects the way they are treated. Today concepts as sustainable development steer the theoretical discussion towards a holistic approach towards planning and management. The fact that the Swedish parliament ratified European Landscape Convention in
2011 strengthens the necessity of such approach, which is a premise for a sustainable landscape to exist and for the possibility to implement the rules of the convention. However, conceptions from earlier history affect the current situation.

By reading yearbooks from three Swedish non-governmental organizations I have analysed different conceptions of landscapes during the 20th and 21st century, and how those have affected the protection of the Swedish landscapes. The result shows that there are still mediated landscape
values from these organizations as well as the state, based on decisions and steered by different ideas. The three organizations have most often been new thinking and driving the discussion towards a more holistic approach, which also can be recognised in today’s theoretical discussion with for example the European Landscape Convention.
