    'We cannot have a truly sustainable city with deep inequalities and deep injustices

    City planners are increasingly considering climate change when crafting sustainable models of living. They’re also thinking more about social justice and equity when designing their city’s future.

    “We cannot have a truly sustainable city with deep inequalities and deep injustices,” says Julian Agyeman, professor of urban and environmental policy and planning at Tufts University.

    Agyeman spoke on the subject with NewsWorks Tonight’s Dave Heller. This was ahead of Agyeman’s lecture tomorrow at the Penn Humanities Forum entitled “Beyond Green Environmentalism: E/Quality of Life and Just Sustainabilities.”
