Kate Rigby challenges the anthropocentric perspective of many modern green city development schemes, inviting us to see cities for the multispecies locales that they truly are. Offering a set of different practices of “deep sustainability” that integrate human and more-than-human perspectives, Rigby reimagines green cities from an interdisciplinary environmental humanities perspective to see how they can also be sites of more-than-human prosperity with bio-inclusive forms of ecological citizenship.
