Title: Just sustainabilities in policy, planning and practice
Professor Julian Agyeman, Tufts University
Professor Julian Agyeman will first outline his concept of ‘just sustainabilities’ – the full integration of social justice and sustainability, defined as ‘the need to ensure a better quality of life for all, now and into the future, in a just and equitable manner, whilst living within the limits of supporting ecosystems.’ He will then give practical examples in terms of his recent research into urban planning and design, food justice, sharing cities, bike equity and planning for intercultural cities.
