Julian Agyeman on Just Sustainabilities
Wednesday, February 23, 2022 4:00PM EST Online
Dr. Julian Agyeman, Professor of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning, and Fletcher Professor of Rhetoric and Debate at Tufts University, is one of the leading thinkers in environmental justice and food justice. In this talk, Julian will outline the concept of just sustainabilities as a response to the ‘equity deficit’ of much sustainability thinking and practice. He will explore his contention that who can belong in our cities will ultimately determine what our cities can become. He will illustrate his ideas with examples from urban planning and design, the ‘Minneapolis Paradox’ and food justice. This keynote presentation and Q&A will be moderated by Dr. Kristin Reynolds, Chair of Food Studies in the Bachelor’s Program for Adults and Transfer Students within the Schools of Public Engagement. Presented by the Food Studies Program, the Environmental Studies and Urban Studies programs, and the Tishman Environment and Design Center.
