Environmental citizenship is a concept that implies a set of rights and responsibilities arising from the environmental impacts of human actions. It consists of a series of rights and duties, which exist alongside civil, political and social rights. Environmental citizenship offers an alternative to the mainly market-based incentives to achieve sustainability. Environmental problems are often global in nature, therefore, environmental citizenship has relevance to multiple scales of governance beyond the nation‐state. Environmental citizens can be included in the decision‐making process through opinion polling and deliberative processes. This book studies, analyzes and upholds the pillars of environmental citizenship and its immense importance in modern times. It is compiled in such a way that it will provide in-depth knowledge about the theory and practice of environmental citizenship. Those looking for information to further their knowledge will be greatly assisted by this book.
