Placemaking as applied integral ecology: Evolving an ecologically wise planning ethic

World Futures 61 (1 & 2):127 – 137 (2005)
An exploration of the possible place and purpose of a postmodernizing planning, in the pursuit of ecological wisdom - defined, in Ken Wilber's terms, as how to get people to agree on how to live in accord with nature. Placemaking - conceived as a form of applied Integral Ecology - is hypothesized as an appropriate planning response, driven by a more explicit "spirit-friendly" outlook, with an associated critique of contemporary conventional notions of growth and sustainability. Place and placemaking are viewed as furnishing the rich relief of an ecologically wise planning.
