Amongst growing awareness over the past half century that human activity threatens our natural environment, many of the world’s largest cities have played a role in the sustainability movement, as seen by such initiatives as Day of Cities sponsored by the United Nations in 2019. So far, local governments in towns, smaller cities, and counties have not played a prominent role in the green movement. This book, including several interviews with city mayors, is a guide for local governments and citizens wishing to launch sustainability campaigns and programs that make a lasting difference in our world. Alexandra Reed Lajoux addresses the popular "green city" topic but focuses on smaller municipalities (towns, small cities, counties), which are more numerous than big cities, and in greater need of guidance. The book discusses the realities of municipal leadership such as budgeting and taxes and financing "urban" renewal projects. It will appeal to a broad range of town or city government employees and elected officials contemplating the issues of managing and funding sustainability including growth, parks, traffic, conservation, power, trash, waste, flood, and "green" issues that all localities worldwide face at some level.
