Just CITIES is a one-day conference that brings together researchers, professionals, and activists to discuss: What is a just city? How can scientists, industry, philanthropy, and urban governance walk-the-talk and create more equitable urban environments?
The conference will open with a keynote by Professor of History of Science Londa Schiebinger from Stanford University and director of Gendered Innovations in Science, Health & Medicine, Engineering, and Environment. Panel discussions bringing together academics, stakeholders and philanthropists will dive into three themes: Equitable Data, Healthy Cities for Everyone, Feminist Urban Governance.
The conference will showcase how different research and design methodologies can help decision makers build and govern more just and equitable cities. The conference encourages methodological innovation, will include an art screening and end with a joint writing workshop whereby participants and panelists can reflect on and share learnings from the day.
Raising feminist awareness, we ask how can intersectional and sustainability goals work together? How can interdisciplinary research and innovative, collaborate methodologies help advance just urban development in the future? All welcome!
The conference is organized by Associate Professors Henriette Steiner and Kristin Veel, Intersect Research Hub, Copenhagen University and supported by the Carlsberg Foundation, Boligfonden Kuben, Urban Green Transition Living Lab and Københavns Universitets Almene Fond.
