‘Living Community’ is a product of relationships between People, Place, and Stewardship. People should be enhanced by their relationship to Place (People’s activities contribute to shaping Place). Place can only be achieved when engaged by the people it is meant to serve (Place contributes to shaping People’s behavior). Stewardship requires a careful accounting of the benefits that Place offers in lifting and enhancing People (on an individual and societal level) in direct relation to the “taking” from nature that occurs in order to construct Place. Place must be able to enhance the lives of People on a physical, social, economic, and spiritual plane for proper Stewardship to be reached. This panel discussion will broaden the dialogue on the topic of ‘Living Community’ by exploring these relationships while also looking at the responsibilities that exist as policy makers, designers, administrators, developers, and users of our human environment, along with its subsequent impacts on people’s lives and nature.
