Abstract [en]

The connection between ecosystem services and well-being has recently come to focus as humans are putting more and more pressure on the ecosystem. This study aims at identifying and highlighting the local well-being gains of the ecosystem services to the citizens of the city Santiago, Chile. In order to do this a variety of experts were consulted using semi-constructed interviews.

The main results showed that the ESs recreation and social, air purification and urban temperature regulation were the most important ESs and as well the most beneficial. The largest threats for the ESs

were short-sighted policies and inefficient management in Santiago. In order for long-termed sustainable solutions to happen, further understanding of the interaction between humans and the ecosystem is needed as well as more environmental education among the citizens and policy makers.
