Leading the inclusive city : Place-based innovation for a bounded planet Paperback / softback
Cities are often seen as helpless victims in a global flow of events and many view growing inequality in cities as inevitable.
This engaging book rejects this gloomy prognosis and argues that imaginative place-based leadership can enable citizens to shape the urban future in accordance with progressive values - advancing social justice, promoting care for the environment and bolstering community empowerment. This international and comparative book, written by an experienced author, shows how inspirational civic leaders are making a major difference in cities across the world.
The analysis provides practical lessons for local leaders and a significant contribution to thinking on public service innovation for anyone who wants to change urban society for the better.
