Add to Cal
  • Host Department: Program in the Environment
  • Date: 10/19/2012
  • Time: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

  • Location: Rackham Amphitheater, 4th Floor

  • Description:

    Economic inequity and poverty are a daily reality for billions of people worldwide. Climate change and other impending crises threaten ecosystems and population centers across the planet. Each of these crises demands immediate attention, but they are often in conflict. Which takes precedence? How can we address them both?

    Join urban and regional planning faculty and students – along with distinguished academics and practitioners from around the country – for a one-day symposium featuring a series of round-table discussions and critical thinking. These sessions will allow us to debate and discuss – Is sustainability socially just? Is social justice sustainable? Can we advance both, in both theory and reality?
