Innovation in planning is essential to dealing with the challenges society currently faces, from urban sprawl to climate change.

The book takes a holistic approach to sustainable community design, covering aspects such as: - Transportation and how to avoid reliance on private vehicles - Ecological, psychological and economic values of open spaces - Neighborhood resilience and health - Affordability and energy consumption Interviews with and information from designers of sustainable communities provide first-hand insight into their development. Outstanding illustrated case studies from communities throughout the world add depth and insight into this important subject.
