    This week on Cities@Tufts, Quilian Riano presents "Spatial and Political Change". In this presentation, we explore examples of work that look at how spatial games — defined as processes with loose rules for others to interpret and execute as they see fit — can become design tools to broaden the socio-spatial imagination and conversation.

    The Energy Equity Project with Kyle Whyte and Justin Schott

    The Energy Equity Project with Kyle Whyte and Justin Schott

    This week on Cities@Tufts, Kyle White and Justin Schott present on The Energy Equity Project. The Energy Equity Project is working to create a framework for measuring equity across energy efficiency and clean energy programs among utilities, state regulatory agencies, and other practitioners, while engaging and centering Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities and frontline communities. An equity measurement framework, set to launch in beta form in 2022, will serve environmental and climate justice advocates, practitioners, regulatory agencies, and utilities to drive more equitable investments and outcomes in energy efficiency, distributed generation and storage (i.e. solar + batteries), demand response, electrification, and electric vehicle infrastructure. The presentation will offer an overview of EEP's work, including the energy equity issues it addresses in urban contexts, and an update on the framework being developed and the stakeholder engagement process.

    Transportation Inequities with Tamika Butler

    Transportation Inequities with Tamika Butler

    This week on Cities@Tufts, Tamika Butler presents "Transportation Inequities: What's Data Got to do With It?"
    How have white supremacy and structural racism shaped transportation and the built environment throughout the history of the United States? And how does engagement, data, and policy add to these disparities and challenge us all to think about data differently? Join national transportation expert Tamika Butler to talk about transportation inequities — and how data exacerbates those inequities.

    Punitive and Cooperative Cities with Stacey Sutton

    Punitive and Cooperative Cities with Stacey Sutton

    This week on Cities@Tufts, Stacey Sutton presents: Punitive and Cooperative Cities.
    The City of Chicago’s automated traffic enforcement fines and fees are disproportionately borne by Black, Latinx, and low-income residents. Simultaneously, Chicago is on the precipice of implementing one of the largest community wealth building initiatives in the country, defined by the city as “an approach to economic development that promotes the local, democratic, and shared ownership and control of community assets in order to transform our economy to be more sustainable and just.”
    Stacey Sutton discusses these distinctive areas of research in Chicago (and beyond) by drawing on her Punitive Cities and Cooperative Cities frameworks.

    Collective Land Governance for a Changing Climate with Linda Shi

    Collective Land Governance for a Changing Climate with Linda Shi

    This week on Cities@Tufts, Lind Shi presents: Collective Land Governance for a Changing Climate.
    Human civilization is headed towards a collision between rapidly changing conditions of land under climate change and static institutions governing land and property. Contemporary development models are predicated on Western European land ethics, property rights regimes, and land policies that evolved during a period of relative climatological and geological stability on Earth.
    Nevertheless, much as there are “varieties of capitalism”, a variety of land governance systems exist around the world. This talk shares examples of collective land governance that have enabled communities to adapt to economic and environmental shocks. It raises the possibilities of expanding collective land ownership to respond to the climate challenge.

Thomas Clever ,

A very provocative show

Can community gardens actually lead to gentrification and White Supremacy?
I never would have thought so until listening to Cities@Tufts.

I’m looking forward to what they discuss in the future.
