SEED Annual Social Responsibility Lecture

(4 March 2016)

This year’s SEED Annual Social Responsibility Lecture will be held on Tuesday, 8th March, with a drinks reception from 4.30pm and the talk from 5pm.

The lecture will be given by Professor Julian Agyeman, Professor of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning at Tufts University, USA in Lecture Theatre B, University Place.

Julian is the originator of the concept of ‘just sustainabilities’ which he defines 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 argue that integrating social needs and welfare offers us a more ‘just’, rounded and equity-focused definition of sustainable development and sustainability.

The event is co-sponsored by CURE, the Centre for Urban Resilience and Energy.

The event is free and you can book your ticket here
