This coming Tuesday, Oct. 7th, please join the Center for Humans and Nature, in partnership with The Chicago Sustainability Leaders Network and the Institute of Cultural Affairs, for a free interactive discussion entitled “Is It Just Space?” — how justice is a critical component in how we create, maintain, and engage with urban spaces. Refreshments are provided, and there are still a few spots available for the program!
- Through interactive activities, all participants will be encouraged to share stories and ideas about justice and space in Chicago.
- A facilitated dialogue with four panelists—community activists Melanie Eckner (Uptown) and Orrin Williams (South Side), Sustainability Studies Professor Michael Bryson (Roosevelt University), and Professor of Urban + Environmental Policy + Planning and CHN Senior Scholar Julian Agyeman (Tufts University, at left, participating via Skype)—will reflect on key ideas surfaced by the full group about the relationship between justice and space.
- The event will conclude with a full group discussion about implications for community action in Chicago.
