London is one of the most dense, vibrant, and influential urban centers in the world, and this book takes a close look at how it is addressing one of the key questions of our time: environmental sustainability. An impressive group of contributors from a wide range of fields takes on questions of transportation, housing, property development, education, and more, looking at the effects of sustainability initiatives not only on the environment but also on inequality, urban accessibility, and more.
