Social and environmental aspects and coexistence

Sigrid Eskeland Schütz explores offshore wind farm planning with environmental assessments for social, environmental aspects, and coexistence.

In this video we look at how we go about when we plan for an offshore wind park, and the use of environmental impact assessments, in order to secure social and environmental aspects of offshore wind, and coexistence.

After you have completed the video, you can think through these issues:

  1. What are the social and environmental aspects of offshore wind?
  2. What makes offshore wind acceptable in the eyes of the general public, and how do we protect environmental interests?
  3. Why do we need an impact assessment? When, for planning and projects? How is it performed?
