Abstract

Regional areas often possess a characteristic sense of place and purpose dependent on the specifics of their environmental, historical and societal natures. This sense of place and purpose is reflected in their activities and enterprises as well as by their collective and shared values and aspirations. Wider society has much to both learn and benefit from studies aimed at understanding the characteristic vulnerabilities and strengths of their regional areas. This book embraces at its core an appreciation of different ways of knowing, of incorporating different values and perspectives from all stakeholders and of a continuous search for balance between such dynamic aspects.
