You are warmly invited to the SEED Annual Social Responsibility Lecture, delivered by Professor Julian Agyeman, Professor of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning at Tufts University, USA.

Tuesday 8th March, University Place, Theatre B

Reception from 4.30pm, talk at 5pm.

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’. Julian 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 kindly co-sponsored by CURE, the Centre for Urban Resilience and Energy.

Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating discussion.  The event is free to attend, but please sign up here.

Everybody is welcome, across and beyond the University, so please feel free to circulate this invitation widely.
