Meet the Authors

Many voices. Greener cities. Better cities.

We are over 650 contributors from around the world, all passionate about understanding cities as ecosystems and human habitat, with urban nature and its importance for people at the center of urban design for resilience, sustainability, livability, and justice.

Urban social-ecology and design, indeed urban life, is fundamentally multidimensional, and we are a diverse group, including ecologists, sociologists, architects, designers, leaders of NGO’s, city managers, gardeners, professors, activists, artists, entrepreneurs, and writers. Explore the list below to see who we are and where we live.
