I am the first editor of Urban Environmental Education Review, which includes 30 chapters by 82 authors from 19 countries. The authors explore how urban environmental education contributes to individual and community well-being, and debunk common assumptions that cities are ecologically barren and that city residents don't care for, or need, urban nature or a healthy environment. This volume integrates research and practice to help aspiring and practicing environmental educators, urban planners, and other environmental leaders advance their goals related to urban sustainability and environmental justice. Chapter topics range from the urban context to theoretical underpinnings, educational settings, participants, and educational approaches in urban environmental education (see the preview.
