Attention to our place-based psychological ties has been increasing
in the field of environmental psychology in terms of community development (Manzo and Perkins. 2006, Williams and Vaske. 2003). However, there are few considerations in which these ties make an effect on decision-making process. The issue of decision-making
has been often discussed in the field of urban planning as a “consensus building” last few decades. However, there is a lack of very simple understanding in this field; no conflicts will be happened which derived from non-place-based interests between stakeholders because “people assign the meanings to place through the process of living in it”. This lecture introduce an understanding of a role of personal emotional bonding to places which may encourage people’s attitude and behavior in community planning process and show some examples of the role of place-based emotional bonding and a way to make people active.
