In our November/December issue we are marking COP26 with a special issue dedicated to cities. Currently, more than half the world’s population live in cities – a number expected to rise to over two thirds by 2030. Cities are energy hungry, and major emitters of greenhouse gas emissions. As well as being a cause of the crisis, however, with better planning, transport and food, cities are also part of the solution.
Features include: Laura Haynes imagines city life through a prism of past, present and future; Herbert Girardet explains why creating regenerative urban systems is key to solving the crises of our times; and Mothiur Rahman introduces new municipalism and looks at how to restructure cities so they better serve the local community.
In Wisdom & Wellbeing, Jini Reddy takes a walk and finds magic in the city and Nat Mady shares tips on urban gardening; whilst in Arts Ellie Harrison discusses public transport and art activism in Manchester.
We hope you enjoy our selection of free articles from this issue of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine.
