#2. SSU – Prof. Gordon WALKER

PART OF THE 2022/23 STADSSALONSURBAINS LECTURE SERIES ‘MOVING CITIES FORWARD, LEAVING NO ONE BEHIND: TOWARD FAIT & SUSTAINABLE TRANSITIONS’

“The overheating city: Unliveable killing machines or inclusive adaptation?”

Prof. Gordon WALKER |
– Lancaster University

This year has seen temperature records being broken to an extraordinary extent and pervasiveness, providing a clear indication, if yet another was needed, that the climate is in crisis. The experience of heatwave conditions around the world has been frighteningly intense and sometimes repeated and prolonged, with consequences that are typically all the more severe in city environments. In this talk I will consider the complexities involved in governing heat as a material, cultural and spatio-temporally differentiated phenomenon, the unequal vulnerabilities that physiologically and structurally put some populations far more at risk than others and the dilemmas of how to respond while simultaneously transitioning towards a post-carbon condition. Whether the future is one of ‘cool inclusion’ adapting to heat extremes in ways that respond to inequality and vulnerability and resist embedded colonial legacies; or one in which keeping cool for some means intensified threats for others, is a crucial question for urban life around the world.
