Questionnaire on the contribution of landowners to other people’s enjoyment of the outdoors

The European Landowners’ Organisation along with other EU level organisations have developed a questionnaire which seeks to gather information on the extent to which land owners and managers contribute to others enjoyment of the outdoors.
 
The questionnaire calls these benefits to society “cultural ecosystem services” (CES).  They are described as non-material benefits people obtain from ecosystems, such as positive aesthetic or recreation experiences.  This questionnaire is targeted at individuals who are engaged in the delivery of CES through the way in which they manage privately owned land or other sites.
 
The information gathered will be used to support a better understanding of the multiple societal and environmental benefits provided by land owners, land managers and those involved in the management of certain rural recreation activities.
 
Landowners across Scotland will be able to answer most of the questions in a positive way and therefore demonstrate how relevant the work they do is to wider society, so please take a few minutes to complete the questionnaire which can be found here...
