Socio-Ecological Urban Development : Concept and Local Practice (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den här boken handlar om hur miljömässiga och sociala åtgärder i stadsutveckling hänger ihop och påverkar varandra. Boken är tänkt att ge praktisk inspiration och bidra till fortsatta diskussioner kring vad en socioekologisk stadsutveckling kan vara.

I den beskrivs ett antal exempel hämtade från Järva i Stockholm, Ålidhem i Umeå och Rosengård i Malmö och de handlar om cykling, konsumtion, lärande om miljöfrågor, deltagande, offentliga rum, odling och lokal ekonomi. Avslutningsvis diskuteras hur en socioekologisk praktik kan utvecklas i framtiden, till exempel genom att starkare ta utgångspunkt i begrepp som rumslig rättvisa eller miljörättvisa.

Abstract [en]

Urban development is often pursued with the purpose of improving social and ecological conditions in parallel. This book deals with how these ambitions can be integrated, how environmental and social measures are related and how they influence each other. The aim is to formulate socio-ecological perspectives and practices. How is it possible to elucidate the connections between ecological and social concerns in local urban development – when new buildings are constructed, when functions change, or when neighbourhoods are renovated? How can we handle the risk that renovation will exacerbate problems of social exclusion? What social norms are inherent in environmental measures? For whom is the sustainable city?

 

The book presents different ways of understanding ecological sustainability, social sustainability and the intersections between them. It also describes a number of practical examples of socio-ecological urban development from sustainability projects in the Million Program areas of Järva in Stockholm, Ålidhem in Umeå and Rosengård in Malmö. The examples concern cycling, consumption, environmental education, participation, public spaces, gardening and local production. The authors also discuss how socio-ecological practices can be developed further, for example by more explicitly taking concepts such as spatial or environmental justice as starting points. The aim is that the book  inspires practice and contributes to ongoing discussions on socio-ecological urban development in municipal planning departments, housing companies, associations or among interested groups of citizens.
