Greening Cities Outside the Central City: Green Urbanism in the Global Suburb

January 23, 2016 ▪ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Our future lies in cities, and everyone agrees that our cities need to be greener and more sustainable. Most examinations of green urbanism focus on projects in urban centers, but another key aspect of urbanization is suburban development occurring outside the central city areas. In this public conversation, Roger Keil, professor of Environmental Studies at York University, Toronto, and Julie Sze, professor and Director of American Studies at University of California, Davis, discuss where global suburbanism and urban environmentalism intersect and help us imagine how a democratic political space can emerge from this moment of possibility.
