    Abstract

    McManus P. Mines, wines and thoroughbreds: towards regional sustainability in the Upper Hunter, Australia, Regional Studies. Sustainability promotes the perpetuation of environmental quality for present generations, future generations, and other species. Regions are privileged bounded spaces and a focus for sustainability concerns. This paper explores the notion of sustainable regions by employing a case study of the Upper Hunter, Australia, a region that is a node in material and discursive networks for coal mining, wine making, and thoroughbred breeding. It defines sustainability as environmental sustainability, which is a basis for socio-economic development. While planning for sustainability at a regional scale is vital, it is also necessary to understand material and discursive networks that connect regions with other spaces. [image omitted] McManus P. Mines, vins, pur-sang: faire la durabilite regionale dans la Upper Hunter en Australie, Regional Studies. La durabilite favorise la poursuite de la qualite environnementale pour les generations actuelles, futures et pour d'autres especes. Les regions sont des espaces clos privilegies, au centre des preoccupations relatives a la durabilite. Cet article analyse la notion de region durable en s'appuyant sur une etude de cas de la Upper Hunter, region qui constitue un nœud des reseaux discursifs et de materiaux pour l'industrie miniere, la viticulture et l'elevage des pur-sang. Il definit la durabilite en tant que durabilite environnementale qui constitue une base de developpement socio-economique. Alors que la planification de la durabilite a l'echelle regionale est fondamentale, il faut egalement comprendre les reseaux discursifs et de materiaux qui reunissent des regions dans d'autres espaces. Planification regionale Espaces clos Region durable Environnement Upper Hunter Changements climatiques McManus P. Bergwerke, Weinberge und Vollbluter: auf dem Weg zur regionalen Nachhaltigkeit in Upper Hunter, Australien, Regional Studies. Das Prinzip der Nachhaltigkeit fordert die Wahrung der Umweltqualitat fur die heutigen und kunftigen Generationen sowie fur andere Arten. Regionen sind privilegierte abgegrenzte Raume und ein Fokus fur Fragen der Nachhaltigkeit. In diesem Beitrag wird der Begriff der nachhaltigen Regionen anhand einer Fallstudie aus der Region Upper Hunter untersucht, die einen Knoten in den materiellen und diskursiven Netzwerken fur Kohlebergbau, Weinherstellung und Vollblutzucht darstellt. Nachhaltigkeit wird als Nachhaltigkeit der Umwelt definiert, die eine Grundlage fur soziookonomische Entwicklung darstellt. Eine Planung fur Nachhaltigkeit auf regionaler Ebene ist zwar unverzichtbar, doch ebenso notwendig ist ein Verstandnis der materiellen und diskursiven Netzwerke, die Regionen mit anderen Raumen verbinden.

Minas, vinos y caballos de pura raza: hacia una sostenibilidad regional en Upper Hunter, Australia, Regional Studies. La sostenibilidad fomenta la perpetuacion de la calidad medioambiental a generaciones presentes y futuras y a otras especies. Las regiones son espacios delimitados privilegiados y un foco de problemas de sostenibilidad. En este articulo analizo la nocion de regiones sostenibles empleando un caso practico de la region Upper Hunter que es un nodo en redes materiales y discursivas para la mineria del carbon, la elaboracion de vinos y la crianza de caballos de pura raza. Defino la sostenibilidad como una sostenibilidad medioambiental que es la base del desarrollo socioeconomico. Aunque planificar la sostenibilidad a nivel regional es fundamental, tambien es necesario entender las redes materiales y discursivas que conectan las regiones con otros espacios.
