1. Metropolitan–Rural Relations and Interdependencies.

    Excerpt from Pezzoli, Keith, Michael Hibbard, and Laura Huntoon. 2009. "Introduction to Symposium: Is Progressive Regionalism an Actionable Framework for Critical Planning Theory and Practice?" Journal of Planning Education and Research 28: 336-340.

    By focusing on metropolitan regions, progressive regionalist scholarship misses important aspects of the urban–rural linkages that are essential to the creation of healthy socioecological spaces. Putting rural and hinterland issues on the agenda of progressive regionalism acknowledges the significance of the flows of material and energy resources needed to sustain cities. The concepts of ecosystem services, ecological footprint, natural capital, and conservation-based development are important in this regard. The emergence of New Ruralism (Center for Global Metropolitan Studies 2007) is an attempt to draw attention to the rural side of urban–rural interdependencies; but this focus has not yet entered the progressive regionalist discourse in any significant way.
