Indigenous communities worldwide are facing cultural extinction, a process paralleled by the loss of biological diversity within their ancestral territories, yet these same communities are proactively working to restore and revitalize languages, knowledge, and traditions, and to steward their ancestral lands and waters. Native ecologies and Native cultures are intrinsically connected: if native ecosystems are reshaped, eroded, or destroyed, the indigenous cultures are also restructured or diminished, and may eventually disintegrate as the links between indigenous traditions and culturally important species disappear. The reverse is also true. The urgent need for proactive, participatory, community-based, conservation programs is underscored by worldwide studies reporting the erosion of biocultural diversity, as native cultures and ecosystems are assimilated and transformed by an increasingly homogenous global economy. This volume of field studies co-authored by a USA-based scientist in collaboration with indigenous experts and research associates of the Tado Community, outlines ongoing challenges and locally-based solutions to conserving and revitalizing biocultural diversity.

The One Third You Are Missing

Revision with unchanged content. This is a reminder to architects, urban planners and citizens of how the design of authentic social places in downtowns reflects and cultivates communities all over the globe, every day. Based on the theory of urban sociologist Ray Oldenburg, Third Places offer a neutral ground for contemporary citizens to balance the demanding domestic (home) and gainful (work) realms of life. Numerous examples of Third Places exist in cultures and cities: cafés, barbershops, laundromats, delis, pubs, gyms and billiard halls. The concept focuses on the benefits of community-university partnerships aimed at revitalizing declining downtowns and using Third Places to encourage social growth. The dissertation proposed three designs for a Town-Gown (community-university partnership) Third Place located in the site-specific context of a downtown embracing a university satellite campus. Supplemented by thoughts from Ray Oldenburg and international architect Will Alsop, the theory encourage us to reflect on the importance of social and cultural Third Place designs in the context of North American downtown revitalization.

Rural tourism is identified as a tool for rural revitalization. Rural areas are sleeping giants in possibilities of economic development for the local community surrounding these areas due to its potential availability of natural and cultural rural tourist attractions, but these areas are of low focus as place for development. The development of rural tourism of any kind can help to address several problems through: economic growth, economic diversification and stabilization, employment creation, as primary source of income but most importantly secondary source of income, reduced out-migration and possibly re-population, maintenance and improvement of public services, infrastructural improvements, revitalizing crafts, customs and cultural identities, increasing opportunities for social contact and exchange, protection and improvement of both the natural and built environment, increasing recognition of rural priorities and potential by policy-makers and economic planners. An important question is whether more can be done to develop rural tourism within such rural areas, as a way of dispersing the benefits and decreasing poverty impacts.
