Sustainable Communities

Researching cultural dimensions of economies and environments, this cluster focuses on the endogenous development of communities, localities and regions, the relationship between culture and place, and utilisation of heritage as a resource. The cluster is also involved in Learning for Sustainability Scotland, working with local and regional communities across Scotland to address issues of sustainability in all spheres of community life.
