Kitchen Table Sustainability: Practical Recipes for Community Engagement with Sustainability
offers a unique view of sustainability through the lens of community engagement. It takes sustainability out of the ivory towers of universities, government department, and planners to the kitchen tables of the world.

This practical guide distills decades of wisdom from community planning, engagement, and sustainability practice internationally into a user-friendly and engaging book that is both inspirational and packed with hands-on tools. The core of the book is a bottom-up approach to participatory community engagement and development, referred to as EATING
, that consists of six components—education, action, trust, inclusion, nourishment, and governance.
373 pages, paperback.
