Global Environmental Change (1)

Global Environmental Change (2)

 

Environmental Management   (1)

    In environment management it is difficult to apply concepts like wilderness, pristine nature, sustainability, ecological region, ecosystem health, working landscape and biodiversity (14, 15, 16).

Environmental Management   (2)

    Most principles applied to the management of ecosystems have been based on the notion of stability

 

Environmental Issues

    Environmental issues have been Clean water Action Council's focus since 1985. A variety of issues affect water quality and quantity.

Phenomenology, Place, Environment and Architecture

    Environmental & Architectural  Phenomenology  Newsletter

        David Seamon, Editor, Environmental & Architectural  Phenomenology Newsletter

       This review article introduces the reader to the nature of phenomenology and reviews phenomenological research dealing with environmental and architectural concerns. An extensive list of  references is provided at the end of the article. A much-abbreviated version of this review appears as A Way of Seeing People and Place: Phenomenology in Environment-Behavior Research, published in S. Wapner, J. Demick,T. Yamamoto, and H Minami (Eds.), Theoretical Perspectives in Environment-Behavior Research (pp. 157-78).  New York: Plenum, 2000.

        ABSTRACT

This review examines the phenomenological approach as it might be used to explore environmental and architectural issues. After discussing the nature of phenomenology in broad terms, the review presents two major assumptions of the phenomenological approach--(1) that people and environment compose an indivisible whole; (2) that phenomenological method can be described in terms of a "radical empiricism."The review then considers three specific phenomenological methods: (1) first-person phenomenological research; (2) existential-phenomenological research; and (3) hermeneutical-phenomenological research. Next, the article discusses trustworthiness and reliability as they can be understood phenomenologically. Finally, the review considers the value of phenomenology for environmental design.

Environmental Scanning

    Environmental scanning as information seeking and organizational learning

        Chun Wei Choo, Faculty of Information Studies. University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada

            Abstract

Environmental scanning is the acquisition and use of information about events, trends, and relationships in an organization's external environment, the knowledge of which would assist management in planning the organization's future course of action. Depending on the organization's beliefs about environmental analyzability and the extent that it intrudes into the environment to understand it, four modes of scanning may be differentiated: undirected viewing, conditioned viewing, enacting, and searching. We analyze each mode of scanning by examining its characteristic information needs, information seeking, and information use behaviours. In addition, we analyze organizational learning processes by considering the sense making, knowledge creating and decision making processes at work in each mode.
