It is how you FEEL about :
where you live
how you live
SENSE OF PLACE
Our SENSE OF PLACE is influenced by our past and
directly impacts how big a part we are willing to play
in our future.
The future is directly impacted by our ‘sense of
place’; our regional story.
Sense of place links issues of place (where we are) to issues of identity (who we are).
It provides a useful vehicle to explore people’s perceptions of, and identification
within, a regional area. Sense of place results from the interplay among the physical
attributes of an area, people’s conceptions and interpretations, and their actions and
activities within the physical setting.
