Beyond Resilience: Actions for a Just Metropolis


Beyond Zuccotti Park’s publisher, New Village Press and its parent organization, ADPSR are among the sponsors and co-sponsors of progressive, practice-based planning conference, Beyond Resilience: Actions for a Just Metropolis. Held at New York’s Hunter College and Pratt Institute on June 6-8; planners, architects, designers, activists, and neighborhood advocates will gather to exchange ideas and perspectives to promote alternative, more sustainable, and just ways of preserving and developing the metropolis.

Contributing authors of Beyond Zuccotti Park count among the list of prestigious speakers:

  • Peter Marcuse leads a session about strategies and problems for the organization and promotion of Community Land Trusts in New York City and similar urban areas.
  • Marcuse will also be on a PN and Progressive Planning Magazinesponsored panel about how neoliberal approaches to housing, land development and urban planning sustain, reproduce and widen inequalities.
  • Jeffery Hou will join a panel that examines how cities and urban places can support cross-cultural interactions and learning, and how cross-cultural understanding can be engendered through social and spatial practices in the contemporary urban environment.
  • Raphael Sperry, President of ADPSR, will discuss how planning and architecture professions can engage with criminal justice and reform as part of a border movement for social justice.
