Community Culture and the Environment: A Guide to Understanding a Sense of Place
This guide addresses the social and cultural aspects of community-based environmental protection. The Guide
offers a process and set of tools for defining and
understanding the human dimension of an environmental issue. It gives leaders in government agencies and in nongovernmental organizations and tribes (such as directors of watershed groups, public health officials, outreach coordinators, environmental educators, and environmental justice workers) technical tools for
more effectively working with the public on environmental protection efforts. The Guide is based on the elements of social science theory and methodology (e.g., anthropology, cultural geography, political science, and sociology) that are most relevant to defining and understanding community life as it relates to environmental issues.
