Moving landscapes - national parks and the Vietnamese experience

This study examines the range of Vietnamese understandings of the natural and cultural environment both in Australia and in Vietnam.

It documents the differing experiences of Vietnamese-Australians to national parks, focusing on the factors influencing the involvement of Vietnamese people in parks and reserves. These include social, age, economic, gender and cultural determinants.

The study also:

  • ascertains whether particular parks or reserves have social significance to Vietnamese people in Australia
  • provides material that could impact on NPWS policy in relation to education strategies for different communities
  • indicates ways of increasing community awareness about the NPWS in the Vietnamese community.

The study is part of an NPWS research program on multiculturalism and conservation reserves. You can download the book, buy it from the DEC Information Centre, or order online.
