Urban and Rural Public Spaces: Development Issues and Qualitative Assessment

1 Introduction Public spaces are of great importance both in people’s lives and in the development of society. In order to better understand their functions, it is necessary to focus on how people build their social relationships. There are three types of bonds that each human being establishes in the course of their life. The first is the family bond, which accompanies human beings from the beginning and helps them to develop properly and become autonomous members of society. Secondly, there are bonds that human beings form when staying in places where they

Selected aspects of water and sewage management in Poland in the context of sustainable urban development

, et al., 2012 ; Leźniki, Lewandowska 2016 ). The environmental problems that cities around the world are facing are very complex, and often locally conditioned. Nevertheless, there are some shared directions of change in this area. This applies above all to implementing what are broadly considered sustainable development principles. One of the most important components of a city’s sustainable development is a well-functioning water and sewage management. This applies above all to the good condition of water and sewage infrastructure with the widest possible access

Capacities of African-oriented Polish NGOs: a quantitative approach

1 Introduction Poland, along with other Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries, has been recognised as an emerging donor since the new millennium. The literature concerning Polish development assistance is rich, though it is not diversified in terms of the range of topics. Since the accession of Poland to the European Union, foreign institutions, non-governmental organisations and individual scientists have been analysing the Polish development cooperation system mainly from the perspective of the Visegrad Group countries ( Drążkiewicz-Grodzicka, 2013

Demographic changes in Polish cities in the years 1950-2016

1 Introduction The transformations in Poland after the Second World War changed the dynamics of socio-demographic and economic phenomena. Three periods clearly emerge here: the end of the war to 1989, 1989–2004 and post-2004, i.e. after Poland’s accession to the EU (including the related opening up of European labour markets and free movement of people). This is also reflected in the demographic development of cities in Poland, where recent years have seen declines in population, as is the case for the country as a whole. The trends seen in almost 30 years

Part II. Drama / Choreography1. Creative Approaches to Personal Development


The contemporary Romanian school has frequently been a matter of debate; contents, methods, strategies, manuals, authors, analytical programs - they have all been supported, debated, annulled and reconsidered. However… The Ministerial Order that has allowed, in 2012, the introduction of “Personal Development” in the curriculum has opened a path that has not yet accomplished its role of guiding students to themselves and to the optimal variant for the manifestation of their potential; this aspect has even been demonstrated by analytical programs submitted to and edited by well known publishing houses. Therefore, the present study is meant to open an efficient dialog on the necessity of a transdisciplinary and creative approach to personal development.

Urban resident perceptions of the impacts of tourism development in Zimbabwe

1 Introduction Studies of residents’ reactions to community tourism first emerged in the late 1980s, when tourism began to be recognised in both industry and academia ( Ap, 1992 ; Andereck, Nyaupane, 2011 ), with such tourism having since then been at the centre of tourism research ( Gursoy et al., 2011 ). The above is in recognition of the significant role that is played by local residents in successful tourism development ( Andereck et al., 2005 ; Choi, Murrey, 2010 ). Several studies have argued that understanding the perceptions of tourism impacts on
