Description

Greening Cities is a treasure trove of practical ideas that embody Green values of social and environmental justice and are actually working on the ground in small, medium, and large cities, as well as some rural communities, all around the world. It shows how these values can and are being incorporated in local government policy and how they shape voluntary efforts by community groups. Topics covered in separate chapters range from urban design, democracy, and culture to energy, water, transporation, food, waste, health, economy and recreation. Originally conceived as a workbook for students in urban and environment studies, public administration, geography, and planning, Greening Cities is also must reading for community leaders, activists, and indeed anyone concerned about and commited to building a more just and sustainable society.
