Julian Agyeman Ph.D. FRSA FRGS is a Professor of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning at Tufts University. Julian 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, and planning for intercultural cities.

Julian’s presentation is the sixth event in Planning Matters, a series of public events sponsored by ULI Memphis and University of Memphis Design Collaborative (UMDC), featuring national planning and development experts from around the country. Planning Matters seeks to both demystify exactly what comprehensive planning is and provide locals with cutting edge ideas and best practices to enhance the Memphis 3.0 plan.

Registration begins at 8:00 am and the program will run from 8:30-10:00 am. Please register by November 13.

This event is free for ULI Members, $10 for Non-Members.
