What would you consider to be part of your community? Is it the block of houses where you live? Does it include the local shops, the park, a library? Is it the town or city you live in with its centre, big stores, buses, office buildings, trees? Or would you say it's the country you live in, or even further still?

There are local, national and international communities. Groups of places, spaces, businesses, services and people. A particular area might just have businesses, and would feel very different to somewhere that just has houses. The design of communities - how they work and feel is affected by a wide mix of people from governments and businesses to local residents, as well as professional designers.
