Global Im-Possibilities: Exploring the Paradoxes of Just Sustainabilities (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


At a time where environmental and social stakes are at their highest - with rising crisis and contradictions at the nexus of increasing environmental and social collapse - there are no easy solutions. Global Im-Possibilities: The Paradoxes of Policies, Plans, and Practices for Just Sustainabilities explores just what can be done around the world to ameliorate this social and environmental collapse.

Via a range of essays and a multitude of case studies, this book explores what new lessons can be learned from examining the challenges and impediments to achieving just sustainabilities on the levels of policy, planning, and practice, and considers how these challenges and impediments can be addressed by individuals and/or governments.

Taking a nuanced approached to provide an intersectional analysis of a particular issue related to the ideals for achieving sustainability, this book asserts that that it is only in recognizing such complexity that we can hope to achieve just sustainabilities.

This is a must read for undergraduates, graduates and anyone involved with policy planning or change-making who seeks to create lasting-transformation at a global level.
