Just Sustainabilities Re-imagining e/quality, living within limits

Julian Agyeman
Thursday, May 22, 2014
7 p.m. 282 Lillis Hall

Agyeman outlines the concept of ‘just sustainabilities’ and argues that integrating social needs and welfare offers us a more ‘just,’ rounded, and equity-focused definition of sustainability and sustainable development, while not negating the very real environmental threats we face. Agyeman looks at examples of just sustainabilities in practice, focusing on ideas about ‘fair shares’ resource distribution globally; planning for intercultural cities; achieving wellbeing and happiness; the potential in the new sharing economy; and the concept of ‘spatial justice’ and how it complements the more established concept of social justice.

Julian Agyeman is Professor of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning at Tufts University, co-editor of Cultivating Food Justice: Race, Class and Sustainability (2011), author of Introducing Just Sustainabilities: Policy, Planning and Practice (2013), and co-editor of Incomplete Streets: Processes, Practices and Possibilities (forthcoming).
