Efforts to create greener urban spaces have historically taken many forms, often disorganized and undisciplined. Recently, however, the push towards greener cities has evolved into a more cohesive movement. Drawing from multidisciplinary case studies, Urban Natures examines the possibilities of an ethical lively multi-species city with the understanding that humanity’s relationship to nature is politically constructed. Covering a wide range of sectors, cities, and urban spaces, as well as topics ranging from edible cities to issues of power, and more-than-human methodologies, this volume pushes our imagination of a green urban future.

Ferne Edwards has conducted research on sustainable cities across Australia, Venezuela, Ireland, Spain, Norway and the UK. Her books include the edited volumes, Food for Degrowth: Perspectives and Practices and Food, Senses and the City (both Routledge, 2021), and the monograph, Food Resistance Movements: A Journey into Alternative Food Networks (Palgrave, 2023).

Lucia Alexandra Popartan is a Juan de la Cierva postdoctoral researcher at LEQUIA – Institute for the Environment at University of Girona. Her research interests are political ecology, critical urban geography, degrowth, food, water and energy nexus.

Ida Nilstad Pettersen is an Associate Professor in Transition Design at the Department of Design, Faculty of Architecture and Design, NTNU – Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Her research addresses sustainability transitions, practice transformation, participation, consumption, and urban natures.
