Planners Network at the Left Forum

Beyond Resilience: Actions for a Just Metropolis

PN and Progressive Planning Magazine are sponsoring a panel at The Left Forum, Sunday June 9, 3-4:50 pm at Pace University, Room W626

See leftforum.org for details.

The panel will cut through the chatter about sustainability and urban resilience following recent storms. Instead we talk about ways that long-term social and economic inequalities persist and grow as the result of official responses to natural disasters and the contradictions of disaster capitalism. We will show how neoliberal approaches to housing, land development and urban planning sustain, reproduce and widen inequalities.
