The Urban Environmental Management Project (UEMP) at the University of Waterloo was formed as an attempt to address these concerns through a civic approach (see also Nelson, this volume, Dempster, this volume).
Reflecting a breadth of issues, concerns, disciplines and approaches similar to other edited collections, the papers in this theme issue of Environments derive from presentations in a workshop series on urban environmental management initiated and coordinated by the UEMP. The people involved in the Project believe that coping with the urban environmental management challenge requires a civic approach to research, policy and practice.
In the case of the UEMP, the aim was to bring people together -- from within and outside the university -- to discuss social and environmental issues, to consider values and interests, and to share knowledge and expertise through a participatory collaborative process.
Recognizing the importance of such issues, one focus from the beginning of the UEMP was to propose and develop bridging concepts as a means for enabling people from different disciplines to interact with comfort.
