The beach, a surface phenomenon containing an entire world : - an interviewstudy about value and usage of beaches in the bay of Laholm (English)
Abstract [en]

Some of the sand dune areas in the bay of Laholm have a protection value from a European perspective. The head questions for this study were: In what way does a beach have value for the people who live nearby? What activities are being practiced in the bay of Laholm during the different seasons? A didactic reflection follows in relation to the courses Geography 1 and 2 in the Swedish upper secondary school. The theoretical framework was Haggett (1983). He talks about the beach as a metaphor for the world. The chosen method was a sound-recorded and transcribed interviews with anonymous adults, who live near the beach in the Bay of Laholm. The result demonstrates how the beach was valuable for all the respondents in different ways. The categories for question one were: Optimism, conflict of interests, disharmony, freedom and beach relation. The result also showed how different activities were taking place at the beach both during the bathing season and off season. The categories for question two were: Movement, location, obstacle, entertainment and recovery. Is there any connection between the fact that the respondents live close to the beach and how they value the beach? If the beach is associated with negativity, does it affect the chosen activity? In Geography 1 and 2, the beach could be a theme to work with in several central contents. Haggett’s metaphor is also a suitable foundation. The hidden curriculum is important in this context - what values is created by the chosen content? In Geography 1 and 2, the teaching should be based not only on the central content, but also with the abilities and the knowledge requirements. Future research could investigate how valuable the beach is for people who live further away and what kind of activities there are at other beaches in Sweden.
