Resilient Places

The main objectives is to develop modes of innovation for greening places, and contribute to effective governance of social-ecological systems and long-term sustainability, based on the assumption that place-based approaches will strengthen the resilience of areas against global pressures. Resilient Places focuses on the notion of a ‘coupled’ social-ecological system which sees human society as dependent upon natural systems, while at the same time human agency acts as the driver of ecosystem dynamics.
