This book discusses how citizens can participate more effectively in sustainability science and environmental policy debates. It discusses designs for participatory procedures, and experiences of their application to issues of global change. While the focus is on citizen participation, the involvement of specific stakeholders - including water managers and venture capitalists - is also addressed. The book describes how focus group methods were combined with the interactive use of computer models into new forms of participation, tested with six hundred citizens. The results are discussed in relation to other important topics, including greenhouse gas and water management. By combining this with an examination of issues of interactive governance and developing country participation, the book provides state-of-the-art, practical insights for students, researchers and policy makers alike.

"I believe Public Participation in Sustainability Science is a solid, rigorous contribution that will be useful for scholars in the sociology of science, citizenship studies and environmental education as well. Any academics studying social movements, citizen participation, policy making or the public sphere in general should amply benefit from its reading." -Yves Laberge, Institut Quebecois des Hautes etudes Internationales, Quebec City, Political Theory
