Västra Harg nature reserve

Östergötland, Sweden

The Västra Harg nature reserve in Östergötland, Sweden, boasts one of the country’s largest hardwood areas with unique oak woodlands. However, as a result of competing land uses, these oak woodlands are degrading.

New engagement approaches and dialogues are needed for promoting the health and well-being of oak woodlands and the communities which depend on them for their quality of life. Inclusive conservation is about creating a dialogue for balancing the different visions for oak woodland management and associated pathways for promoting quality of life in the Östergötland region.
