Open Lecture: Julian Agyeman – “Just Sustainabilites in Policy, Planning and Practice”
Welcome to an open lecture by Julian Agyeman, the recipient of a 2023 honorary doctorate at KTH, on the integration of social justice and environmental sustainability.
Time: Fri 2023-11-17 10.00 - 11.30
Location: KTH: Gradängsalen at: Teknikringen 1, floor 4
In his lecture, 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, and will illustrate his ideas with examples from urban planning, and design, cycling and the ‘Minneapolis Paradox’.
Julian Agyeman is Professor of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning at Tufts University. He is the originator of the increasingly influential concept of just sustainabilities - the intentional integration of social justice and environmental sustainability.
Professor Agyeman is the recipient of a 2023 honorary doctorate at KTH. This lecture is presented on the day of his reception of the award.
The event is arranged by the TRANSPLACE research school for sustainable planning and built environment.
