This 'Call for Papers' (CfPs) for a Special Volume of Journal of Cleaner Production (SV) is focused upon various dimensions of sustainable urban transformations applied to the cities across different scales, which range from buildings, neighborhoods, cities and regions. Theme 1 calls for theoretical definitions, future visions or imaginaries, characteristics of catalyzing sustainable urban transformation (including smart city, healthy city, eco-city, regenerative city and related Concepts). Another theme is pathways towards urban models that support sustainable urban transformation. Another one is obstacles, benefits and enablers for the implementation of sustainable urban transformation. Authors intending to participate to this CfPs are informed that the editorial team and Elsevier staff will do their best to adhere to the time-schedule, but that is also dependent upon authors and reviewers co-working with us on this cooperative journey.
