This chapter focuses on the application of cultural ecosystems mapping as a participatory, co-produced visualisation and engagement method. Using a case study of the Lee Valley in London, it investigates how local communities relate to and engage with urban water environments using arts and humanities methodologies. Engaging people with issues around cultural ecosystem services through the interaction with large-scale maps of the local area helps to ground the more abstract issues of identity, connectivity, sense of place, emotional attachment, and spirituality, as well as overcome the traditional barriers to participation and inclusion at various spatial scales. Cultural mapping in particular helps to articulate the spatial and historical relationships and triggers debate over connectivity, governance, environmental justice, and both environmental and social change.

Keywords:   cultural ecosystems, engagement method, local communities, urban water environments, arts, humanities, participation, inclusion, social change
