    Celebrating the Mundane: Nature and the Built Environment.Lenore Newman & Ann Dale - 2013 - Environmental Values 22 (3):401-413.
    The dualism of nature/culture widely present within Western society at large is out of step with an increasingly urbanising world. Building on previous discussions of nature/culture duality, an integrative framework is presented that argues for the embracing of the 'mundane nature' found within human landscapes. As over half of the human population interacts with nature primarily within urban landscapes, increasing our awareness of such spaces is critical to understanding our ecological consciousness. The examples of a recent rooftop greening bylaw in (...)

    Does Place Matter? Sustainable Community Development in Three Canadian Communities.Lenore Newman, Chris Ling & Ann Dale - 2008 - Ethics, Place and Environment 11 (3):267-281.
    The creation of a sense of place has emerged as a goal of many community development initiatives. However, little thought has been given to the role of physical spaces in the shaping of possible senses of place. This article examines three Canadian examples of community sustainable development initiatives to demonstrate that sense of place can be shaped and constrained by the geographical and environmental features of the physical space a community occupies. This finding suggests that a 'one-size-fits-all' approach to community (...)
