How is London responding to social and economic crises, and to the challenges of sustaining its population, economy and global status? Sustainable development discourse has come to permeate different policy fields, including transport, housing, property development and education. In this exciting book, authors highlight the uneven impacts and effects of these policies in London, including the creation of new social and economic inequalities. The contributors seek to move sustainable city debates and policies in London towards a progressive, socially just future that advances the public good. The book is essential reading for urban practitioners and policy makers, and students in social, urban and environmental geography, sociology and urban studies.

Product Description

Review

"Sustainability is a term that has risen in prominence just as global cities like London are becoming ever less sustainable. This important new book calls for a renewed emphasis on social justice in urban policy making. The authors remind us of the things that really matter in life and the political battles that need to be won over wages, housing, transport and the environment." --Professor Jane Wills, Queen Mary University of London

"It s no longer a surprise that the words sustainable development at best are marginal adjustments, or more likely, cynical greenwash. Sustainable London explores the results in ruthless detail seen in the post-political , socially cleansed mixed communities , complete with their poor doors and anti-homeless spikes . It is a waymarker which sets the agenda." --Joe Ravetz, Co-Director, Centre for Urban Resilience and Energy, University of Manchester

This is an innovative and accessible book that makes a significant and unique contribution to the discussion around sustainability, providing a high level of commentary and analysis from a range of strong contributors. --Dr John Flint, University of Sheffield
