Mark’s research focuses broadly on sustainable and resilient communities, and specifically on the importance of community engagement and placemaking in effective collaborative planning. Inspired by the creativity and careful craft of place makers of all types, Mark explores how communities are tapping into local knowledge and values to ensure that resilient planning and design is people focused. Mark is currently working on projects examining community-based approaches to low-carbon resilience, and the influence of nature-based citizen science on transformative environmental learning.
