Justice governance and sustainability some perspectives on environmental citizen ship from North America and Europe


Julian Agyeman and Bob Evans have been concerned with civic environmentalism, particularly in urban planning. They founded one of the key academic journals linking academic research to policy networks, Local Environment. This reading compares the US experience of civic engagement strategies on the environment with new developments in the European Union. It also provides insights into the relevance of equity, justice, governance and democracy for understanding these developments while posing challenges for some understandings of environmental citizenship. This reading is informed by their broader research on 'just sustainability', civic environmentalism (the focus of this reading) and environmental leadership or advocacy.
