The Dutch Society for the Protection of Birds has just coined a new term in the fight to ensure ecological diversity in Dutch meadows. The suffering brought about by the monotonous agrarian landscape to both human and non-human animals from now on goes by the name of ‘landschapspijn’ (landscape pain). They urge the next government to ensure that ‘landscape pain’ does not transition into ‘landscape nostalgia’ as ecologically diverse meadows may disappear altogether if agricultural policy is not changed radically.
