Strong local interest in dialogue project on Danish wolf-management

On a public meeting in the village of Idom Tuesday 22nd August the local citizens from Idom and Raasted expressed a strong interest participating in a Critical- Utopian Citizens Dialogue process on wolf-management. The meeting was organized in collaboration with the Village Committee of Idom-Raasted, two master students and Centre for Adaptive Nature Management at Aarhus University. The Critical- Utopian Citizens Dialogue process will during the next six months offer the local citizens the opportunity to formulate and express their critique and concerns regarding the wolves and the wolf- management. The citizens will also get the opportunity the develop their own visions and suggestions  for the future wolf management and, during the process, get answers to some of their questions in dialogue with the best available experts to ensure that the local ideas and suggestions are rooted in the best available facts and knowledge. 51 local citizens participated in the meeting and by the end of the meeting the first 36 had registered for the dialogue process starting up in September 2017.

The project is a pilot and it is the ambitions of the research team that the pilot will generate experiences useful for an upscaling of the project so that citizens in other areas close to wolf-areas will be offered the same dialogue- and learnings opportunity as in the Idom-Raasted area. It is furthermore the ambition that politicians and authorities, based on the experiences from the work, can be offered some better tools to involve local citizens in wildlife management and nature conservation in the future.

Demokrati i ulveskind (Danish)

Lupus. I løbet af bare to-tre år har vi fået den samme ballade mellem ulvekrammere og -hadere, som vores nordiske naboer har døjet med i 30 år. Nu er der ansat en samfundsforsker blandt biologerne på Kalø for at lære naturforvaltningen at lytte til borgerne.

Naturen er blevet en politisk kampplads

Den danske natur er et fælles gode. Alligevel er den blevet til en politisk kampplads, fordi borgere, politikere og erhvervsfolk alle har forskellige ønsker for forvaltningen af den. Det skal et nyt rådgivningscenter jonglere med fremover.

Geese threaten air traffic (Danish)

Many parts of Europe are beginning to experience an annual biological 'invasion' from the air in recent years. This ‘invasion’ is beginning to pose new challenges to air traffic, nature conservation and agriculture as the numbers of some northern-breeding wild goose populations have exploded.
