Urban Crisis: Culture and the Sustainability of Cities

M. Nadarajah (Editor) Ann Tomoko Yamamoto (Editor)

Unprecedented urban growth makes sustainability in cities a crucial issue for policymakers, scholars, and business leaders. This emerging urban crisis challenges environment-based and economic-based approaches to sustainability, and brings to the forefront the multi-faceted and critical role that culture plays in ensuring that cities are viable for future generations. Culture provides fertile ground for new approaches to sustainable development at the local level. Urban Crisis: Culture and the Sustainability of Cities makes important contributions towards a theory on culture in sustainable cities, assesses the use of culture indicators as a tool for policymakers, and includes useful case studies of Patan (Nepal), Penang (Malaysia), Cheongju (South Korea), and Kanazawa (japan0 This book offers fresh insights into the role of culture in fostering community development, environmental awareness, and balanced economic growth, and it will be of particular interest to students of urban studies, academics, and civil society groups working on urban issues.
