unPlanned, in this time of nationwide protest and change in the wake of George Floyd’s murder at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, unPlanned is joined by urban planner Wendell Joseph of Sasaki to talk about the issues of race and cultural biases in cities and in planning. Planners need to bring their expertise to address complex problems, he says, but they also need to be moved by the voices of the communities in which they work. He points out that for some communities, lack of resources means there’s little capacity to imagine what the world will look like tomorrow, never mind 10 years from now. For other communities, imagining what their town will look like in 50 years is normal. "The capacity to think about the possibility of the future is a function of privilege.” This disparity is inequitable, and it's part of a planner's job to address it. Produced by Sam Seidel.
