THE PLACE OF VILLAGES IN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT by Stephen Zehr, Department of Sociology
When Date 3/19/2013
Time begins 3:00 PM
Time ends 4:00 PM
Where

Location

Kleymeyer Hall

Room number

LA 0101
Event details This presentation draws upon the STEPS Centre Manifesto to discuss the concept of sustainable development, which has been critiqued for its lack of clarity, internal contradictions, and abusive applications. Rather than rigidly defining the concept, sustainable development becomes open to multiple pathways that attend to the direction, distributional impact, and diversity (the “3Ds”) of innovations for sustainability. The “village” (from city to small town) may be the right scale for studies and experimentation of innovative practices. Professor Zehr’s presentation will draw upon the cases of Wiernsheim, Germany (twin city of New Harmony) and Copenhagen, Denmark for examples of innovative practice that attend to the 3Ds, and that can be used to stimulate innovation in southern Indiana villages.
