Just published: “Sustainable Societies in a Fragile World. Perspectives from Germany and Japan” (SUP Sophia University Press, edited by Carola HOMMERICH and Masato KIMURA)

Focusing on Germany and Japan, two of the world’s largest economies, this volume presents a collection of case studies and survey research which tackle questions of sustainability within three core areas:
1. Transition to an environmentally friendly society (waste management, sustainability education, and environmental attitudes);
2. Sustainable and resilient regional and urban development (disaster resilience and smart cities);
3. Inclusive societies (homelessness under COVID-19, cyberbullying, and democratic values).
The book brings together experts from sociology, education, psychology, and urban engineering, with most of the research being interdisciplinary and comparative in nature, documenting the challenging journey towards a sustainable future.
