Abstract

This volume outlines current interdisciplinary research on the reciprocal relations between humans and the built and natural environments. The expert contributors investigate topics such as environmental impact on health and well-being, identity and place attachment, urban sustainability, and challenges linked to global or national environmental phenomena. Some chapters reflect on theoretical contributions that offer alternative ways of thinking about human–environment interactions, while others focus on methodological challenges and innovations.
The quality and interdisciplinary diversity of the chapters make the book a unique contribution to understanding present and future human–environment challenges at all scales and in all global contexts. It will be valuable to researchers, practitioners, and policy makers across a range of related disciplines, including psychology, architecture, urban design and planning, education, sociology, human and social ecology, interior design, and geography.
