Cities for People & Nature

The e-book, Cities for People and Nature, reflects on the CAUL Hub's key findings following six years of research. The content follows several key themes: Cities are Indigenous Places, Air Quality, Urban Greening, Urban Biodiversity and Future Cities. We hope you find it engaging, thought-provoking and inspiring, as we all prepare to tackle the many environmental and social challenges that cities will face in coming decades.
