Wheeler authors Reimagining Sustainable Cities: Strategies for Designing Greener, Healthier, More Equitable Communities
Stephen Wheeler and Christina D. Rosan's new book Reimagining Sustainable Cities: Strategies for Designing Greener, Healthier, More Equitable Communities was published this month by University of California Press. The book argues that structural change in institutions and socioeconomic systems is needed to make more substantial progress towards sustainability. Green technologies and policies such as are currently being pursued won’t be enough. The authors also argue that a creative process of design—including design of institutions and social structures as well as physical places—is necessary to move towards urban sustainability.
