about this item

Based on an October 2010 conference organized by the University of Alberta, this collection identifies key factors for contextualizing sustainability in rural Canadian communities, conditions for successfully initiating a sustainability policy process, and practices for supporting collaborations. Topics of the 15 papers include engaging the public in wildlife and greenspace stewardship in Camrose, integrating climate change considerations into municipal planning in Newfoundland and Labrador, university-community partnerships that support small town economic transition, and rural first nations tourism. Two assessment models highlight the importance and complexities of understanding the effects of sustainability-oriented planning, action, and programming.
