This chapter draws together the loose threads of the preceding discussions: it calls for an understanding of the urban that foregrounds a radical socio-natural praxis rooted in the everyday. It links this understanding to a critique of existing environmental practice and to the possibilities within the ruined shards of the latest financial crisis. The task ahead is clearly a monumental one. But it is one that is in the hands of the many and not of the few: because of this, it feels, oddly, more achievable.

Keywords:   urban, socio-natural praxis, everyday life, environmental practice
