image of Designing our Future
This volume focuses primarily on society at the local and regional levels and on a scenario in which human beings coexist harmoniously with nature. This ideal society is examined in terms of the relationships between villages or towns and their natural environment. It also looks at how these villages and towns can achieve local or regional independence in the face of pressures toward centralization and globalization. This book highlights the importance of developing a society in harmony with nature through the networking of diverse communities to promote and achieve local independence.

The concept of sustainability governance

Although there is no clear definition of sustainability governance, it is possible to agree that it is decision-making of a local participatory type with the aim of building a sustainable regional society. Sustainability governance is not governance of the top-down type under the leadership of an administration. Nor is it “management”. Rather it is a bottom-up style of decision-making that involves various participating citizens and stakeholders.
