This paper aims to advance this area of research by mapping the terrain of this emerging, disparate field within policy/planning contexts internationally. We examine the literature through three lenses: temporal, spatial and conceptual, which reveals rather weak linkages between the conceptual underpinnings of culture and sustainability and community planning praxis.

Introduction -- Myth #1 (Time). Culture and sustainability is a new concept/paradigm that has just recently emerged ; Truth. There are at least three main phases of conceptual development in this area that stretch back over 12 years or more -- Myth #2 (Space). Culture and sustainability are only the concerns of advanced, developed economies and societies ; Truth. The concept has emerged in a number of places globally – places that are at various stages of development and that are experiencing a variety of pressures with regard to culture -- Myth #3 (Concepts). We understand what “culture and sustainability” means and how the concept can be incorporated into urban planning frameworks ; Truth. There are many ways of understanding and interpreting the linkages between the two terms, and we are only beginning the process of developing an accurate conceptual map that can be usefully bridged with urban cultural planning processes -- Origins -- UNESCO: Conceptual evolution ; Operationalizing culture and sustainability -- COnclusions -- References
