Insightful Reading on Urban Sustainability

The University of Toronto Press has published Urban Sustainability: Reconnecting Space & Place, edited by Ann Dale, William T. Dushenko and Pamela Robinson.

Given ongoing concerns about global climate change and its environmental and economic impacts, the need for urban sustainability has never been greater. Urban Sustainability: Reconnecting Space & Place explores concrete ways to make cities more sustainable through integrated planning, policy development, and decision making. It is the first book to provide an applied inter-disciplinary perspective on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in this area. This volume sheds light on the theoretical underpinnings of urban sustainability through narrative case studies. The contributors provide fresh perspectives on how issues related to sustainable urban planning and development can be promoted through collaborative partnerships and community engagement.
