Description

The need to make our communities sustainable is more urgent than ever before. Toward Sustainable Communities remains the single most useful resource for creating vibrant, healthy, equitable, economically viable places. This comprehensive update of the classic text presents a leading-edge overview of sustainability in a new fully-illustrated, full-color format.

 

Compelling new case studies and expanded treatment of sustainability in rural as well as urban settings are complemented by contributions from a range of experts around the world, demonstrating how "community capital" can be leveraged to meet the needs of cities and towns for:

  • Energy efficiency, waste reduction and recycling
  • Water, sewage, transportation and housing
  • Climate change and air quality
  • Land use and urban planning.

Fully supported by a complete suite of online resources and tools, Toward Sustainable Communities is packed with concrete, innovative solutions to a host of municipal challenges. Required reading for policymakers, educators, social enterprises and engaged citizens, this "living book" will appeal to anyone concerned about community sustainability and a livable future.
