Palgrave Handbook of Sustainability: Case Studies and Practical Solutions: A New Blog Series

As many of my readers know, I edited a book with my colleague Sandra Garren called The Palgrave Handbook of Sustainability:  Case Studies and Practical Solutions that came out last year. Our goal in publishing the book was to put together a variety of different case studies that told the story about what people were doing around the world to try to make the world a better place. There is so much bad news out there on the environment right now that it is easy to forget that there are real heroes across our planet there doing incredible work. We wanted to highlight the positive while also providing a compendium of information about sustainability at this particular moment in time. It is one of the largest collections of sustainability case studies ever published and runs 871 pages. The book contains 44 unique chapters that tell individual stories about sustainability initiatives from across our beautiful planet.

To shed even more light on these stories I am starting a new blog series called Sustainability Case Studies that will briefly summarize or capture key elements of each chapter to showcase the work of the authors. I hope my readers enjoy the series and I am excited to share the work of these remarkable authors. To learn more about the book, please click here. As you will see, the entire book is available for purchase and you can also purchase access to individual chapters.

For those of you involved with environmental sustainability, I am the series editor for a new Palgrave series of books on environmental sustainability and I am looking for book authors. Reach out to me if you have a good book idea on the topic.
