It is advocated to apply the strategy at NENT as ‘the total environment that demonstrates the inseparable relationships including physical, cultural, psychological attachments between the community living, cultivating and relying on the territories of lands or waters that in return nurture the community.’ This reciprocal relationship between people and place should be self-reinforcing the reinvented rural tradition to meet new needs of tomorrow. In principle, this idea of cultivation between people and place with new insights on the planning is respecting natural flows of life, integrating productive landscapes and rebuilding common grounds for both existing and incoming communities.
