Sustainable cities make an effort to reduce their impact on the planet. They find environmentally friendly solutions for transportation, energy, and other parts of their infrastructure. Making a City Sustainable examines examples of how city planners have used sustainable technology to protect the environment in their communities. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject. Features include a table of contents, infographics, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. Core Library is an imprint of Abdo Publishing, a division of ABDO.
