Sustainability.  It is a term sweeping the country when dealing with
community development.  Alan AtKisson presents an overview of the trend
toward using "sustainability" -- linking economic, environmental, and social
well-being -- as a framework for community development.

In this 1 1/2 hour videotape, Mr. AtKisson introduces a comprehensive
picture of what sustainable development means both in theory and in
practice, drawing on examples from around the Pacific Northwest, the U.S.,
and the rest of the world.  Although the case examples discussed focus
primarily on community development, the assessment framework introduced can
also be used to assess the contributions individual projects, such as those
in agriculture and natural resources, make to the overall sustainability of
human and ecological systems.
