European cities contribute to the development of a more sustainable urban system capable to cope with economic crises, ecological challenges and social disparities in different nation-states and regions throughout Europe. This book reveals in a comparative perspective the unique profile of European cities as generators of sustainable development, and the special contribution of culture to this process. It addresses both a deficit of attention to the role of small and medium-sized cities in European sustainable development, and an underestimation of the role of culture, arts and creativity for integrated development of the city as a prerequisite for urban sustainability. On the basis of a broad collection of case studies and good practices throughout Europe, representing a variety of regionally specific cultural models of sustainable development, the book investigates how participative culture, community arts, and more generally, creativity of civic imagination contribute to the goal of a sustainable future for small and medium-sized cities. This is an essential volume for researchers and postgraduate students in urban studies, cultural studies, cultural geography and urban sociology as well as for policy makers and practitioners wanting to understand the specificity of European cities as hubs of innovation, creativity and artistic industriousness.
