Jul 10: Cultivating Food Justice with Julian Agyeman

Join MetroFuture Walks & Talks for a special presentation on just sustainability and food justice from Julian Agyeman, Professor and Chair of Urban and Environmental Policy & Planning at Tufts University.  His most recent publication, Cultivating Food Justice, examines how many low-income neighborhoods and communities of color do not have access to nutritious food.  They often live in “food deserts” where the lack of grocery stores and healthy options often leaves them with no choice but convenience stores and fast food.  “Cultivating Food Justice” envisions an environmentally sustainable and socially just future for the food system.  Julian Agyeman is an environmental social scientist and the originator of the concept of ‘just sustainability’, the full integration of social justice and sustainability, defined 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.

Event will be held at the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, 60 Temple Place, Boston from 11:00a.m.-12p.m.
