Presented by Colorado College at Cornerstone Arts Center Richard F. Celeste Theatre

The annual Timothy C. Linnemann Memorial Lecture on the Environment this year features Julian Agyeman.

Agyeman is a professor of urban and environmental policy and planning at Tufts University. He is the originator of the concept of ‘just sustainability,’ the full integration of social justice and sustainability. He will argue that integrating social needs and welfare offers a more just, rounded, and equity-focused definition of sustainability and sustainable development, while not negating the very real environmental threats we face. He will then look at examples of just sustainabilities in policy, planning, and practice, focusing on ideas about public spaces, street and urban design, planning for intercultural cities; urban agriculture and food justice, and Sharing Cities as a more inclusive concept than the largely economic notion of the sharing economy.
