This Call for Papers (CfPs) for a Special Volume of Journal of Cleaner Production (SV) focuses upon multiple dimensions of regenerative sustainability (e.g. regenerative design, regenerative development, and positive development) applied to the urban built environment at scales, which range from individual buildings, neighborhoods, urban development to integrated regional sustainable development. It was designed to address the objectives of (1) documenting the theoretical development of the term regenerative sustainability, its emerging principles and practices, (2) explaining how it can be measured and monitored, (3) providing encouraging practical pathways and examples of its implementation in multiple cultural and climatic contexts, and (4) mapping obstacles and enablers that must be understood and addressed so that more rapid progress can be made in implementing the shift towards an urban built environment that supports a genuinely sustainable society. © 2013 The Author.
