Green Liberty, Latvia

In the biosphere reserve of North Vidzeme in Latvia the local community was able to object to the development of wind energy in specific areas by being included in public consultations and participating in a public survey (among the inhabitants residing in the area) about what should be considered as a characteristic “Latvian” landscape. This has resulted in an effective planning process in which socio-cultural values have been effectively integrated.
