Bringing jointly case stories from the U.S., united kingdom, Poland, Israel, South Africa, The Netherlands and Italy, it covers a variety of matters and contexts, starting from the metropolitan to the group point. at the foundation of those case reviews, the booklet indicates that planners do certainly have various strategies to develop sustainability notions at those degrees, and seem to be doing so.
