About Mattias Sandberg

My overall research interest revolve around human-environment relations, outdoor recreation, landscape planning, time-geography and political ecology. Currently I study farmer’s management of woody-pastures in an UNESCO Biosphere reserve (East Vättern Scarp Landscape) in Sweden. The background to the study is a controversial tree-density limit that was imposed by the EU in order to differentiate between the official categories of agriculture (policy that falls under the competence of EU-CAP) and forest (policy that falls under the competence of the member states). This case of “simplifying nature” is used as an entry point for talking with farmer’s about their relationship with trees and how the management of woody pastures, one of the most species-rich habitats found in Europe, is influenced by changing policy directives.

I finished my PhD in 2012 and my dissertation (published in Swedish) deals children’s contact with nature/green space near to their homes in an urban context.
