Place is an ever-changing artifact of cultural meaning and identity, actively created by human interaction. Place-making, then, is how we come to ascribe attachments and meaning to a geographical location. Urban planning and the creative arts have utilized place-making as an intentional practice to create community. When joined with sustainability, place-making can become an avenue to strengthen the connections between the cultural and ecological richness of communities, encouraging decisions and actions that support the flourishing of both the human and natural worlds. Place-making and Sustainability invites the campus community to engage in conversation about place-making and how we can distill global lessons for fostering a cultural and ecological connection to place here at Bucknell.
