Sense of Place


“If you don’t know where you are, you don’t know who you are.”
—American writer Wendell Berry

Your 'sense of place' is how you feel about a place and how a place makes you feel!

People develop a “sense of place” through experience and knowledge of a particular area. Throughout the world and over the ages who we are is often rooted in this sense of place. Coming from a certain region influences language, values, lifestyle, and our culture. Developing a sense of place helps us identify with a place and that which surrounda us. A strong sense of place can make us care about our cultural history and natural environment.
