The researchers will explore people's attitudes towards and the impact of wind power on the landscape and the attractiveness of natural areas.

The project will reflect people’s interests by using stakeholder workshops, in-depth qualitative and survey research to base its conclusions in close collaboration with local and regional stakeholders, the tourism industry and the wind power industry.

Results will be disseminated in a final report and through popular media. The deliveries include the development of an assessment tool for experience values and decision-making strategies for wind power establishments.
