Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Rio+20 UN conference has highlighted that there is still life and vitality in the concept of sustainability. The greatest frontier remains how to bring this idea into mainstream practice in our cities. The growth of cities and their consumption of the earth's resources must become a critical focus for policy and practice or the issues of climate change, oil vulnerability, water and biodiversity will become too hard.  But sustainability demands that solutions to these issues are done in a way that not only is more cost effective but it helps to create more opportunities for people to improve their quality of life. This special issue of Sustainability is seeking papers that can demonstrate how these environmental, economic and social goals can be achieved synergistically and can be applied in practice now. It is seeking papers on these solutions from a variety of city types across the globe.
