How to go even more local after COVID-19 w/ Neal Gorenflo, Stacy Mitchell and Jose Ramos
Cities@Tufts Lectures explores the impact of urban planning on our communities and the opportunities to design for greater equity and justice with professor Julian Agyeman and host Tom Llewellyn. While you may want to stretch your legs so to speak after months of lockdown, keeping some new, pandemic-inspired aspects of local life and even deepening them collectively will be needed to combat systemic challenges like climate change and extreme wealth inequality. Today, we’re bringing you a special bonus episode with the audio from an event Shareable hosted last week, How to go even more local after COVID-19. Shareable’s Neal Gorenflo kicks things off by briefly sharing his lessons learned from a just-concluded, year-long life experiment in local living before launching into a discussion with Stacy Mitchell, Executive Director of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR) and futurist Jose Ramos, Director of Action Foresight. The event launched Shareable’s new e-book “A Year of Living Locally” based on Gorenflo’s year-long experiment with a foreword by Stacy Mitchell. You can download the ebook here. Cities@Tufts Lectures is produced by Tufts University and Shareable.net with support from The Kresge Foundation. (Most) Lectures are moderated by Professor Julian Agyeman and organized in partnership with research assistants Meghan Tenhoff, and Perri Sheinbaum. “Light Without Dark” by Cultivate Beats is our theme song. Robert Raymond is our audio editor, Elizabeth Carr manages communications and editorial with support from Neal Gorenflo. Joslyn Beile handles operations, and the series is produced and hosted by Tom Llewellyn.

Sacred Civics with Jayne Engle
We're collectively experiencing an epochal moment when humanity and the earth face unprecedented existential challenges. How can we value what matters for the common good and transcend dominant city-making paradigms in this context? A sacred civics invites us to recognize the spiritual and sacred dimensions in people and cities and to imagine reshaping our settlements as life-centered places, where local residents build regenerative economies in relationship with nature, and where we rise to be our best selves, for the good of current and future generations. How might we redefine and build infrastructure for an urban recovery that addresses the reality and possibilities? Dr. Jayne Engle leads Cities for People, an initiative of the McConnell Foundation in Montreal, Canada, which fosters inclusive urban innovation for equitable and regenerative cities. Cities for People aims to increase equality; strengthen the city as a commons; and enable city change labs, explorations and transformation networks.

From green privilege to green gentrification
Today, we are beyond delighted to welcome Isabelle Anguelovski to be our first speaker of this series. She's the founder and director of the Barcelona Lab for Urban Environmental Justice and Sustainability (www.BCNUEJ.org). Isabelle has links to the Boston area. She did her Ph.D. in Urban Studies and Planning at MIT before returning to Europe in 2011 with a Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship. She's a prolific author, and her current research is on four main areas, the politics of the green city as a growing global planning orthodoxy, the social and racial manifestations and impacts of green gentrification for historically marginalized residents, urban planning, and health and wellbeing with a focus on health equity and justice, and justice and inclusivity in climate adaptation planning, including distributional and procedural insecurities produced by adaptation plans, interventions, and land-use configurations and regulations. Her talk today is "From green privilege to green gentrification: environmental justice versus white supremacy in the 21st-century American city." What could be more appetizing than that? Cities@Tufts: Shareable.net is partnering with Tufts University, The Kresge Foundation, and professor Julian Agyeman and his team on this 8-episode series highlighting some of the cutting-edge thinkers and doers pushing the envelope for more just and sustainable cities.
