About The Book

This is a book of blogs, a collection of diverse works from researchers across the globe who all have something important to say about the way in which our world is changing and how we can strive towards a more sustainable future. This book contains the work of over 80 urban social researchers on sustainable urbanisation and transitions to urban contexts. The aim of this book is to welcome dialogues, rather than a monologue, on the urbanisation processes taking place across the world and what to do about the places we build, and the impacts of human activity on the environment, health and climate. This project was carried out in association with the International Social Science Council.
