Living Cities, An Urban Myth? by Garry J. Smith

Book Description

Fundamental problems persist in the approach of western democracies to sustainability and the local environment. Economic growth and the local democratic process continue along traditional development pathways, largely dismissive of the impacts on the environment. The important political and social dilemma reflects a disengagement of the public with the social and political processes required to address the problem. The situation poses serious risks for the public, particularly future Australian generations. Current human behaviour and social decision-making make little sense. The work describes practical methods to address these problems and to help educators, the public, and government practitioners to get started on changes and to accelerate their rate of progress. The book, documented by reference from a wide range of literature, enables educators, students, government professionals and the community to consider and adapt appropriate aspects of the work to their specific needs.
