Dialogues in Urban Planning: Towards Sustainable Regions. Edited by Tony Gilmour and Edward J. Blakely, with Rafael E. Pizarro Sydney University Press ISBN: 9781920899127
In an age when the buzzword is ‘sustainability’, why do we continue to build unsustainable cities and regions. Are there alternatives to car-clogged streets, sterile suburban McMansions and a degraded natural environment?
Dialogues in Urban Planning: Towards Sustainable Regions brings planners back to the centre of the debate It shows that sustainability can no longer just apply to the subfield of planning called ‘environmental planning’ but has to permeate all aspects: housing, economic development, transport, regional coordination and urban design.
Showcasing cutting-edge research from academics and doctoral research candidates at the University of Sydney, this latest edition of the Dialogues in Urban Planning series is recommended reading for professional planners, students and policy makers. We need to find a way to make our regions sustainable for this generation and for generations to come.
