Climate change is an existential threat to human society and current models of global governance, oriented around economic development and urban growth, are failing to respond the unprecedented challenges it presents. Arguing that we must shift our focus away from policy dominated by supply issues and climate adaption, this book calls for radically different policy solutions. It argues that we need to think about the social processes of climate change in innovative new ways and reinvent our cities as devices for impactful environmental activism and change. The authors show how we can transform our cities into agents of change and generate a new understanding of the urban that is in sync with the global environment.

Unless we make drastic changes, the climate damage that we are causing by living in cities will result in terminal consumption. Providing a radical new argument that integrates global understandings of making nature and making cities, the authors move beyond current policies of mitigation and adaption towards making cities spaces for activism.
