Abstract:
The perception of the environment is not yet a part of the "knowledge framework" that is assessed to inform planning. It is investigated but it is still part of a negotiation process that is often based on the power relations of who is negotiating. This hinders a shared vision of development for the enhancement of a "collective sustainability". Parameters to assess the sustainability of an area or to regenerate an area are mainly quantitative and solely related to socio-economic and environmental factors. Cultural analysis is seldom undertaken in the assessment of sustainability. For this reason, new forms of assessing sustainability are advocated in the literature on sustainable development.
