Sustainable Cities in American Democracy: From Postwar Urbanism to a Civic Green New Deal

CITEUS lecture by Prof. Sirianni (Brandeis Univ.)

to

Professor Carmen Sirianni (Brandeis University) will give a lecture on his new book: Sustainable Cities in American Democracy: From Postwar Urbanism to a Civic Green New Deal

The push for sustainable urban development is not new. The book ‘Sustainable Cities in American Democracy: From Postwar Urbanism to a Civic Green New Deal’ presents both a history of civic and grassroots organizations that have fought for environmental protection and a path forward to the establishment of a sustainable city model. Even though the book has a specific focus on the US, the insights also seem very relevant for developments in Europe. His research establishes the connection between environmental activism and the need for a more democratic approach to public policies that affect how cities are planned and how cities respond to the current emphasis on sustainable urban development.

Professor Sirianni is an expert in civic innovation and sustainable cities. His current research, teaching, and public service focus on civic innovation and democratic renewal in the contemporary U.S., democracy in environmental and urban fields. This book presents the insights from many years of research into this topic.
