Forsker fra CLF besøger USA for at undersøge livskvaliteten i landdistrikterne
Pia Heike Johansen har for nyligt besøgt Steamboat Springs, Colorado i forbindelse med hendes forskning. I et nyt interview med den amerikanske avis "Steamboat Pilot & Today" fortæller hun om sin fire-årige undersøgelse af livskvalitet i landdistrikterne.
"What makes people happy? Why do some people live in rural areas while others prefer cities? How does this decision impact one’s sense of well-being?
These are difficult, lofty questions to answer, but they are what Danish researcher Dr. Pia Johansen has spent much of her career studying. For the past 1 1/2 years, she has explored specifically how people in rural communities perceive their quality of life. While most of her work focuses on her native Denmark, she visited Steamboat Springs this weekend to speak with local residents and researchers, as well as to compare quality of life among Americans with her Danish subjects."
