Post-Carbon Inclusion

This collection pays unique attention to the highly challenging problems of addressing inequality within decarbonisation – particularly under-explored aspects, such as high consumption, degrowth approaches and perverse outcomes.

Contributors point out means and possibilities of the transition from high carbon inequalities to post-carbon inclusion. They apply a variety of conceptual and methodological approaches in all-inclusive ways to diverse challenges, such as urban heating and retrofitting.

Richly illustrated with case studies from the city to the household, this book critically examines ‘just transitions’ to achieve sustainable societies in the future.

“Post-Carbon Inclusion is a call to action for policy makers, scholars and activists to prioritize cooperation, reciprocity and generosity over competition, and to recognize the interconnectedness of decarbonization and social equity.”

Darren McCauley, Newcastle University

“A rich collection that pushes the boundaries of how we think about post-carbon inclusion, leaving the reader with a hope for a better world and a plan of how to get there.” Ed Atkins, University of Bristol
