Restorative counter-spacing for academic sustainability.
Jones, David R.
By combining pertinent theories from environmental psychology and human geography, this article proposes a socio-spatial framework of principles, which could be used by academic actors, to reflexively embody and critically enact a bio-cultural connection. It contributes to an emerging line of research, which explores the importance of deepening attachments to local natural settings. By reflecting on an auto-ethnographic, personal account of a Whale Watching experience and indicative international university initiatives such as the Oberlin Project in the United States and the University in a Garden in Malaysia, the article illustrates these principles as both an institutional and an individual signpost for academic sustainability.
