Sense of Place

When people care about where they live, they may become better environmental stewards for their area. This sense of local pride can be built by community features, events and even people. For example:

  • Attachment to historic places in Paris, France support stewardship
  • The annual Tulip Festival brings people together in Ottawa, Canada
  • Teenager Brooke Henderson’s PGA win made all of Smiths Falls very proud
