Sustainable development The world has been in a state of disruptive flux for decades. This transformation signals an unfolding process of creative The world has been in a state of disruptive flux for decades. This transformation signals an unfolding process of creative destruction: society, the economy, politics, cultural life, technology and the environment have, in many ways, changed beyond recognition. Anwar Fazal has been one of the world’s leading witnesses to these dramas – an engaged and engaging public intellectual who has been at the forefront of local and global efforts to forge innovative solutions to pressing problems. Our Cities, Our Homes brings together, for the first time, some of his most important contributions to debates about what kinds of alternative futures are possible. At their heart are a deeply felt commitment to people-centred development, incorporating the values of justice, sustainability and inclusiveness, and the potential of capacity building, enabling people to build on the capabilities they already possess. These values are applied, above all, in reimagining the fate of the city in our time: from the groundbreaking Sustainable Penang Initiative to the global challenge of rampant urbanisation. Written in an accessible style, infused with a clear-eyed passion for emboldened people and liveable places, Our Cities, Our Homes is essential reading for anyone who cares about the future of the planet.
