The challenges lying ahead of the urban areas, specifically cities are formidable. These include growing population, air pollution, congestion, energy efficiency and demand for high quality of living. Although they are varied and can appear as seemingly unrelated, they more often appear on international agendas of the United Nations, European Union and various non-governmental organisations (NGOs) under umbrella of sustainability or more often as green agenda. This book is an introduction to the dynamically developing and evolving area of green innovations taking place in contemporary cities, with a specific focus on the European and North American examples. It is divided into three interconnected parts, each prepared by a separate author specialising in the areas like communal services, real estate and information technologies. First, authored by doctor Dominika P. Brodowicz focuses on green urban models and challenges facing 21st century cities. Second, developed by IT specialist and doctoral researcher Przemysław Pospieszny presents green transportation and smart technological innovations. Third, compiled by Professor Zbigniew Grzymała relates to European and American legal requirements and strategies towards eco-cities development.
