On Tuesday 10 May, Julian Agyeman, from Tufts University in the USA, will be speaking at the Watershed in Bristol on: Sharing Cities. He'll be exploring his latest book, explaining how the concept of sharing offers cities the opportunity to connect smart technology to justice, solidarity and sustainability, and discussing how we can deliver a better quality of life and a healthier environment in Bristol. It sounds like a great night out, and I'm looking forward to it. More details here.
The last time I heard Agyeman speak was in Boston, more than a decade ago, and he apologised for slavery on behalf of the UK (or it might have been England). I thought this rather presumptuous. I expect, this time around, he'll be expecting the staunchly progressive Bristolians from Stokes Croft to do the same. It might be a riotous night.
