Title:
Toward an Interactional Approach to Sustainable Community Development
Publication_Information:
Description:
Abstract:
During the 1980s, the concept of sustainable development emerged as a popular solution to the problem of meeting the material needs of a rapidly growing population while minimizing environmental damage.  Rather than pitting economic growth against environmental protection, proponents of sustainability focus on development which meets the needs of both present and future generations.  This new legitimacy has prompted scholars to broaden the range of issues to which sustainability can be applied.  A potentially important development along these lines has been the growing body of literature surrounding the concept of sustainable community development.  In this paper, we delineate the central features of the sustainable community, assess obstacles to achieving sustainable communities, and present a conceptual framework for sustainable community development based on an interactional approach to community.
