Synopsis: In her study of the interactions between tools of urban sustainability governance in key cities, Lisa Pettibone argues that a new factor-sustainability-minded groups-may be critical to building momentum for sustainability. The book presents in-depth case studies of six cities in the USA and Germany: New York, Portland, Seattle, Berlin, Hamburg, and Heidelburg. Drawing on 75 interviews, document analysis, and a bilingual literature review, the book analyzes how sustainability is politically constructed in city strategic plans and sustainability indicators. The volume provides a comprehensive introduction to the principles of sustainability, discusses the key governance instruments relevant to urban sustainability, and delivers new empirical and theoretical material on their role in a sustainability transition. It concludes that despite the national-level differences, cities’ experiences in both countries are similar. Political sustainability at the city level differs in several important ways from academic principles of sustainability. Finally, it proposes that sustainability-minded groups may be a key link to connect urban sustainability in practice to theoretical concepts.

About the Author: Lisa Pettibone is a research associate at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, where she works on citizen science and participatory research, with a particular interest in transdisciplinary sustainability research. She earned her doctorate in political science at the Freie Universität Berlin and has degrees from the George Washington University and New York University. Dr. Pettibone has worked in the U.S. Senate and the German Bundestag, as well as for the non-profit organization Citizens For Europe.
