In this paper, space and landscape will be understood as naturally predefined and socially created. The sociological approach relies on the analysis of the social context (transition and neoliberalism) as well as on the analysis of the types of social actors and their actions which have their effects in Croatia. In a new social system also new actors appear: political, economic, professional and civil actors. The first three actors form a triangle of power and the fourth appears as a weaker one. The basic approach of this paper is the interest in sustainable development, which is followed by the valorisation of the actors and the actions relating space and landscapes. Several examples of the actors’ influence on landscape in the Mediterranean part of Croatia are being analysed. They show a negative attitude towards landscape and its drastic devastation through concreting and apartmentizing of the coast.
