              Urban Environmental Stewardship and Civic Engagement: How planting trees strengthens the roots of democracy (Paperback)

              Once considered the antithesis of a verdant and vibrant ecosystem, cities are now being hailed as highly efficient and complex social ecological systems. Emerging from the streets of the post-industrial city are well-tended community gardens, rooftop farms and other viable habita...ts capable of supporting native flora and fauna. At the forefront of this transformation are the citizens living in the cities themselves. As people around the world increasingly relocate to urban areas, this book discusses how they engage in urban stewardship and what civic participation in the environment means for democracy. Drawing on data collected through a two-year study of volunteer stewards who planted trees as part of the MillionTreesNYC initiative in the United States, this book examines how projects like this can make a difference to the social fabric of a city. It analyses quantitative survey data along with qualitative interview data that enables the volunteers to share their personal stories and motivations for participating, revealing the strong link between environmental stewardship and civic engagement. As city governments in developed countries are investing more and more in green infrastructure campaigns to change the urban landscape, this book sheds light on the social importance of these initiatives and shows how individuals' efforts to reshape their cities serve to strengthen democracy. It draws out lessons that are highly applicable to global cities and policies on sustainability and civic engagement.

              Once considered the antithesis of a verdant and vibrant ecosystem, cities are now being hailed as highly efficient and complex social ecological systems. Emerging from the streets of the post-industrial city are well-tended community gardens, forested parks and woodlands, rooftop... farms, full-canopied streetscapes, restored wetlands and other viable habitats capable of supporting native flora and fauna. At the forefront of this transformation are the citizens living in the cities themselves. As people around the world increasingly relocate themselves to urban areas, this book discusses how they engage in urban stewardship and what civic participation in the environment means for democracy. One of the most popular types of urban environmental campaign involves planting trees throughout cities to re-green and revitalize communities. This book looks at volunteers to one of the largest urban re-greening initiatives in the United States: the MillionTrees New York City initiative. This detailed case study explores the social motivations of the volunteers who choose to participate in this type of volunteer stewardship activity. Understanding why some individuals choose to get involved while others do not is an important objective at a time when city governments in developed countries are investing more and more money in green infrastructure campaigns to change the urban landscape. Urban Environmental Stewardship and Civic Engagement examines how the efforts of individuals to reshape cities contributes to democracy and introduces and concludes its findings with international applications to global cities and sustainability.
