Join the Climate Museum for a special event with Sheila R. Foster, a leading thinker on the promise of cities for racial justice, environmental and climate progress, and democracy and good governance—with a clear-eyed look at hard truths and challenges as well.
Foster is a Professor of Law and Public Policy at Georgetown and a Visiting Professor of Climate at the Columbia Climate School. She is one of the foremost scholars of climate and environmental justice and the role cities can play in achieving it while promoting social and economic welfare, improving governance, and addressing racial inequality.
In conversation with Climate Museum director Miranda Massie, Foster will discuss the philosophical and practical implications of treating urban spaces as communal, the governance principles undergirding her work on “co-cities,” and the critical role of the city as a commons—a true commons—in the fight for climate justice.
The event is free and open to the public, but capacity is limited and RSVP is recommended to secure a spot. The event will also be streamed on Instagram live.Buy tickets/get more info now
