About this book

The urgent need to resolve conflicts over forests, fisheries, farming practices, urban sprawl, and greenhouse-gas reductions, among many others, calls for a critical re-thinking of the nature of our democracy and citizenship. This work aims to move the ideas of green democracy and ecological citizenship from the margins to the centre of discussion and debate in Canada. It offers sixteen case studies to demonstrate that environmental conflicts are always about our rights and responsibilities as citizens and about the quality of our democratic institutions. This path-breaking collection charts a new course for research and activism, one that reveals the deficits of citizenship and how democracy must be extended to achieve a socially just, ecologically sustainable society.

Media reviews
This book helps reorient environmental discussions in Canada away from standard revisionist policy approaches toward a deeper consideration of how democratic aspirations can push back against the tight policy monopolies that control the environmental agenda in Canada. This perspective is absolutely central to addressing [our country's] environmental problems. - Ray Rogers, York University
