Project description

English EN

Socio-economic rehabilitation after quarrying

Abandoned mines are being transformed – some into underground farms and new woodlands, while others are tourist attractions or impressive renewable energy sites. This is a relatively new phenomenon and there is little information available about visitor numbers and how post-mining sites are perceived. The EU-funded cesmine project will investigate the cultural ecosystem services of post-mining sites. It will analyse the preferences of social network users for post-mining sites and the real use of the sites by residents and visitors in three European countries. The rehabilitation of mines into post-mining landscapes requires socio-economic and socio-ecological considerations. The project will adopt a multi-disciplinary framework to compare different sites and countries to determine effective socio-economic rehabilitation practices after quarrying.
