Pre-order new book on “Global Planning Innovations for Urban Sustainability” by Dr. Sebastien Darchen and A/Prof Glen Searle – Discounts available

This edited volume interrogates innovative solutions for sustainability in cities around the world.

The book draws on a group of 12 international case studies, including Vancouver and Calgary in Canada, San Francisco and Los Angeles in the US (North America), Yogyakarta in Indonesia, Seoul in Korea (South-East Asia), Medellin in Colombia (South America), Helsinki in Finland, Freiburg in Germany and Seville in Spain (Europe).

Each case study provides key facts about the city, presents the particular urban sustainability challenge and the planning innovation process and examines what trade-offs were made between social, environmental and economic sustainability.

Chapter 7 is co-authored by UQ|UP’s Sonia Roitman:

Sukunan Village, Yogyakarta, Indonesia: Environmental Sustainability through Community-based Waste Management and Eco-Tourism Iswanto, Sita Rahmani and Sonia Roitman.

Importantly, the book analyses to what extent planning innovations can be translated from one context to another.
