EDRA52 Detroit Just Environments: Transdisciplinary Border Crossing encourages intentional questioning of disciplinary borders, inclusiveness, and sensitive approaches to framing and solving pressing contemporary problems through research and practice. 


The conference will focus on how research, design, and relationships between people and environments contribute to the creation of justice. The conference will provide a platform to explore issues of justice in the environment in relation to social, cultural, and economic sustainability; race and culture; education, workplace and recreation; youth and aging; health and wellness; equality in planning, policy making, and the design of public spaces; physical border conditions, urban fragmentation and divides; practices of inclusion and community engagement; intersections of justice and ecological sustainability; accessibility and mobility; environmental and community shared resources; pressing global displacement and migration issues; philosophical and ethical concerns; and the necessity of just social, built, and natural environments for a just future. 


EDRA52 will take place May 19-22, 2021. It will be a HYBRID conference, allowing participants to attend events in person and/or virtually. 

We greatly appreciate your continuous support and interest in EDRA and we hope to see you in Detroit + online!
