The paper Transformative journeys: exploring the significance of scapes in archaeology-based interventions on wellbeing explores the significance of scapes in the theoretical conceptualisation of these interventions and reflects upon their short and long-term outcomes on participants and communities.
In the cases when the focus of interventions is centred on a scape, the results are very promising for the design of more meaningful activities for the participants and for the triggering of new topics of discussion. However, no enough work has been done so far on applying some of the strengths of scapes to the activities and further research is needed.

This is the first paper developed entirely as an output of the LOGGIA project. Participation in this conference has been pivotal in getting feedback on the research done on scapes from archaeologists working with landscapes on daily basis. Archaeologists and archaeologists from Europe and America attended the conference (45-60 people).
