Williams, J., 2021, Circular cities: a revolution in urban sustainability, Routledge: London.
We have reached a pivotal time for cities, their sustainability and patterns of growth. Cities face multiple climate, resource and economic emergencies as we emerge from the pandemic. We need to find more socially equitable, low carbon, healthier, resource secure urban solutions, which will respond to these times. Circular development may provide that solution. The book “Circular Cities: a revolution in urban sustainability” breaks new ground in the emerging field of circular cities research. It presents new concepts, provides a clear analysis of circular city practice and points to future development pathways. It also highlights the critical role planners will play in this transformation.
