Community Voices: Creating sustainable spaces

Paulin, S. (ed) (2006) Community Voices: Creating sustainable spaces. UWA Press, Perth, Western Australia.


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 include community recognition and empowerment, Indigenous approaches to sustainability, political ecology, funding, organisational issues and leadership.

It explores varied approaches to community sustainability and highlights successes and failures of previous projects and campaigns.
