Rik De Vreese

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingMeeting abstract (Book)


Based on 39 interviews with stakeholders, we researched whether the images of nature present with our respondents cohere with the ES concept? Grounded Theory revealed that respondents' images of nature are multi-layered and situated along 2 dimensions (1) Nature vs. Culture stance and (2) Relation between Nature and People.
