Mountain landscapes represent symbolic and cultural values, which are a part of driving factors for landscape development in mountain regions, such as scenery,
amenity, identity, authenticity, naturalness, wildlife, seclusion, or sacredness. This first Plenary Session asked (1) how such values are recognised, valuated and used by policy-makers, society and the private economic sector, (2) what issues concerning landscape development need to be addressed, and (3) what appropriate concepts of landscape development or efficient instruments exist to
preserve, improve or create such values.
