dc.description.abstract The different ways in which peoples of the world relate to their environment has created innumerable unique regional identities. These diverse regional identities are valuable, as they create pride and encourage greater involvement in the community. In the United States, regional identity is being threatened by homogenization. Standardization development projects and the event of local economies being replaced by big businesses are causes of this homogenization. Fortunately throughout the world, Regional Identity Preservation Initiatives (RIPIs) have been undertaken. RIPIs are programs geared to safeguard a region’s heritage from homogenization. By using the knowledge gained from these case studies, such as the Pinelands National Reserve in New Jersey, and the Natural Regional Park System in France, a regional identity preservation initiative will be designed for east central Indiana. The Midwest in general is greatly threatened by homogenization, and the RIPI in east central Indiana will increase protection of this region’s unique natural and cultural identity.
