Abstract

A growing number of students demand knowledge on more sustainable practices and climate change actions from their education. This chapter argues that although Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can be hard to implement and put into practice, geographical fieldwork methods are well suited to the study of planning implementation efforts. The chapter is based on a case study of students’ perceptions of a former wetland in a Danish nature park. The study finds environmental blindness among students’ SDG strategies, not least when it comes to understanding the multi-scalar character of the SDGs and their assessment of the (dis)proportionality between different planning proposals, landowners’ and citizens’ natural-cultural representation of the area, and potential effects for more sustainable land transformation.
