Thanks for stopping by People and Place.
It’s now been more than a year since I last posted here. I stopped blogging in spring 2011 to spend more time on my Ecotrust day-job, particularly the development of the publication Resilience & Transformation: A Regional Approach (html, pdf, flash-based online reader).
In 2 1/2 years of P&P, from fall 2008 to spring 2011, I published two issues full of diverse perspectives on resilience thinking and social and ethical approaches to climate change. Both topics have become central to today’s conversations on human wellbeing. A third issue oneconomics and the commonwealth will have to remain incomplete. Thanks to all the writers that contributed articles to P&P.
Over the course of its run, the most popular P&P articles were:
- Resilience Thinking (by Brian Walker)

I hope to keep P&P online — and these articles available — for the near future.
