Dr. Julian Agyeman of Tufts University came to Duke to give a talk today, hosted by the Nicholas Institute and the University Program in Environmental Policy. Dr. Agyeman's talk ('Just Sustainabilities: Re-imagining (E)quality, Living Within Limits') addressed the need to integrate concepts of social equity and environmental sustainability, in theory, practice, and politics. Ideas like walkable cities, urban agriculture, and the design of green space all fundamentally link the cultural, economic, and ecological processes. He writes a thought-provoking blog that covers these same issues. Lots of food for thought...
