'Regenerative Sustainable Development of Universities and Cities'

Now that the Earth has reached the limits of its biophysical carrying capacity, we have to change technologies, social practices and social norms relating to material production and consumption to ensure that we do not further jeopardize the functioning of our planet's life support systems.

Through research, education and civic engagement, universities have a pivotal role to play in this transition. This timely book explores how universities are establishing living laboratories for sustainable development, and examines the communication networks and knowledge infrastructures that underpin impact both on and beyond the campus.

The expert contributors present case studies of living laboratories being built in leading universities across four continents. Focussing on social learning processes to drive societal change for sustainable development, this book will prove an invaluable read for academics, researchers, students and policy makers in the fields of higher education, regional and urban studies, public policy and the environment, and development studies.

''The authors show how university campuses around the world can be "living laboratories" to investigate and demonstrate the practicality of "regenerative sustainability", which looks beyond environmental damage control to a vision of urban development that actually improves environmental quality and human welfare. If these ideas catch on, they could literally change the world", says Steve Rayner, Oxford University.
