Abstract

In my study I have investigated how a constructed outdoor green environment can be

used, managed and how it works. The study also investigates the concept of social

sustainability, where, for example, civil dialogue is a method to promote this. This

investigation mainly gives account for the inhabitants viewpoint but also a gardeners

perspective. The study focuses on the planning process of the study object, what the

outcome has been and how the users of the green environment, think about the result. In

the process there has been a strong concern of involving the residents and others using

the area. I also discuss the results concerning plantation problems, which I can see may

influence the site identity and the quality of green areas, which in turn also can affects

the residents relationship to it. The result also suggests that there still are possibilities

for improvements in the dialogue and the participation of the residents of the area under

the concept that’s been named "Dynamic habitat". The outdoor green environment can

also further provide life quality for the inhabitants and other users, while it hopefully at

the same time, promote the knowledge of ecosystem services.

Sammanfattning

I min studie har jag undersökt hur en grön utemiljö kan planeras samt hur den kan

användas, fungera och förvaltas. Studien undersöker även hur medborgardialog kan

genomföras i ett projekt. Egen inventering av områdets gröna ytor samt intervjuer med

brukare och personer som har varit med i planering och genomförande av platsen, ligger

till grund för arbetet. Resultatet visar att de områden och funktioner som planerats och

gestaltats; nya stigar, grillplatser, lekytor och sittplatser, används och uppskattas av de

boende. Resultatet visar även att det finns möjlighet för de boende att påverka och

engagera sig i utemiljön men att uppkomsten av växtrelaterade problem påverkar de

boendes upplevelse av platsen. Här kan eventuellt förvaltningsformen vara av betydelse,

där personliga relationer med den som sköter platsen kan bidra till ökad förståelse och

kommunikation. En slutsats är att utökat deltagande och engagemang hos de boende

gällande de gröna ytorna i området, kan både främja platsens identitet, social

inkludering och ge kunskap och förståelse om olika ekosystemtjänster.
