Post-Pandemic Sustainabilities


Opening Plenary

9:00 – 10:00: Just Sustainabilities

In his talk, Professor Agyeman 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, food justice, and the ‘Minneapolis Paradox’: how is a ‘green’ city the focus of our current introspection over race in the US.
