This paper focuses on a case study pilot project working with a small group of children aged 6-11 in a village in the North East of England. The study was established to examine children’s attitudes to environmental issues, particularly their involvement in environmental decisions and their feelings about planning, design and management of neighbourhood landscapes. This paper discusses findings in relation to children’s views on participation and landscape decisions. There was a strong feeling that their local landscapes were not planned or managed in favour of children, that children had a potentially valuable contribution to make and they were willing to voice opinions given the chance. The paper reflects on these findings, particularly the success of the mosaic methodology used in relation to the difficulties and ethics of carrying out exploratory research in participatory projects.
