The gap between people's beliefs and their behavior is at the heart of the newest issue of the Michigan Journal of Sustainability (vol. 5, issue 1) published in partnership with Michigan Publishing. Co-editors-in-chief, Erin Hamilton and Neil Lewis, Jr. pose some interesting questions for readers to consider in their introduction to this issue, like: ‘Are there differences between those who are willing to behave sustainably and those who are not?‘

In the content of this new issue, authors address the politicization of climate change, urban residents and transportation, the impact of urban community gardens, and fostering green citizens.
