Presented by the Urban Democracy Lab with funding from NYU’s Global Initiative for Advanced Studies. Co-sponsored by Global Design NYU.
All day event with moderators: Mitchell Joachim and Louise Harpman.
Our future lies in cities, and everyone agrees that our cities need to
be greener and more sustainable. Most examinations of green urbanism
focus on projects in urban centers, but another key aspect of
urbanization is suburban development occurring outside the central city areas. In this public conversation, Roger Keil, professor of Environmental Studies at York University, Toronto, and Julie Sze,
professor and Director of American Studies at University of California,
Davis, discuss where global suburbanism and urban environmentalism
intersect and help us imagine how a democratic political space can
emerge from this moment of possibility.
