Progressive Planning and Community Organizing in the 21st Century

This Thursday, join a seminar at Concordia by Tom Angotti on the need for new approaches to planning and community organizing from a range of histories and perspectives.Organized by Concordia University, this seminar will focus on the need for progressive planning and organizing to go beyond advocacy and equity models. Angotti will trace the historical importance of advocacy and equity approaches, but then talk about environmental and climate justice, gender equality, occupy, black lives matter, anti-capitalism, etc. and how and why planners (and geographers!) are largely silent on these issues.
Date: April 9, 2015, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Place: Room Hive Cafe (Mezzanine), Henry F. Hall Building (1455 De Maisonneuve W.), Sir George William Campus
The seminar will be followed by a wine and cheese.
