Community Voices

Creating Sustainable Spaces

Edited by: Sally Paulin

Community Voices: Creating Sustainable Spaces focuses on the way people come together in community groups to achieve sustainable outcomes. It uses a series of Western Australian case studies to examine a range of projects and campaigns. Locations are a mix of urban and rural communities, and examples of projects explored are the Western Australian Forest Campaign, Saving the Moore River Campaign, and Children Caring for our Coastline. Grouped by theme, issues covered in the text include community recognition and empowerment, Indigenous approaches to sustainability, political ecology, funding, organizational issues, and leadership. The book explores varied approaches to community sustainability and highlights successes and failures of previous projects and campaigns. Whether as an active community member, a student of sustainable community participation and development, or as an interested observer, this book will be invaluable in providing contemporary information and guidance to the ever-increasing field of sustainable development.
