Toward just environmental futures: exploring the equity dimensions of nature-based solutions in cities

This seminar series, funded by the Urban Studies Foundation, brings together a diversity of scholars from the fields of critical urban studies, political ecology, ecosystem services, and nature-based solutions. The aim is for these scholars to share their work, identify research frontiers, and consider how social justice and equity are addressed and enhanced through their fields of study. This webinar represents the kick-off event of the seminar series, and is open to the public. The invited speakers will briefly introduce their work in the form of 5-minute ‘lightning-’ or ‘speed-talks’, and then engage in a panel discussion and Q&A session with the audience.

This event is part of the USF-funded Seminar Series Award: Toward just environmental futures: exploring the equity dimensions of nature-based solutions in cities.

  • Pippin Anderson, Department of Environmental & Geographical Science, University of Cape Town, South Africa
  • Olumuyiwa Adegun, Department of Architecture, Federal University of Technology Akure, Nigeria

"The USF International Fellowship helped me write two journal articles with an internationally renowned scholar in a world-class research environment. As a visiting scholar at Cardiff University, I was provided with convenient working space, good access to university resources, and regularly participated in enriching seminars and workshops. The very generous USF grant helped me cover all the costs related to my activities in Cardiff, making my life and work easier. Moreover, the fellowship boosted my motivation to further pursue my career in Urban Studies."
