This book represents one of the first attempts by a multidisciplinary research team, encompassing the social sciences, business, architecture and planning, engineering, and finance and economics, to help rural communities discover sustainable and self-reliant paths to development and transformation.

The authors demonstrate that interconnected community enterprises based on clean forest products, forest carbon and ecotourism can be underpinned by local infrastructure enterprises such as renewable energy, water, waste management, ICT and transport, and financial mechanisms like carbon finance, all involving skills development, leadership and social entrepreneurship coupled with corporate and investment partnerships.

The book will be officially launched by the Hon Jing Lee MLC, Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Small Business, Trade and Investment and Multicultural Affairs.

We invite you to also join us for a reception in the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery following the event.
