Last year, I carried out a small-scale study for my Masters dissertation in the School of Geography and Planning at Cardiff University, which was intended to inform my current PhD research at the Countryside and Community Research Institute. Coming from a background in human geography and the social sciences, this study was ultimately designed to effectively capture and represent the complex relationships between humans and the natural environment. The central aim of this project was to investigate how an increased understanding of people’s engagement with managing and protecting their local river might contribute to more informed decision-making regarding public engagement in environmental management. This article provides a brief overview of this dissertation project, focusing on the methods used to collect key information and the presentation of the main findings of the study.
