Barcelona Lab for Urban Environmental Justice and Sustainability (BCNUEJ)

El Barcelona Lab for Urban Environmental Justice and Sustainability (BCNUEJ) fue creado conjuntamente entre el Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals (ICTA) de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) y un grupo de investigación del Institut Hospital del Mar d'Investigacions Mèdiques (IMIM). El BCNUEJ desarrolla investigación novedosa basada en estudios de política y planificación urbana, desigualdad social y desarrollo. El objetivo principal es estudiar las oportunidades y los retos creados por iniciativas urbanas municipales, de grupos locales o privadas, que aumentan la sostenibilidad, equidad y salud en las ciudades.

Nuestra investigación examina procesos y dinámicas que conducen a la creación de ciudades más justas, resilientes, sanas y sostenibles, reuniendo teoría y métodos de planificación urbana, política pública, sociología urbana y medioambiental, geografía urbana y salud pública. Nuestros estudios analizan hasta qué punto planes urbanísticos y decisiones políticas contribuyen a la creación de ciudades más justas, resilientes, sanas y sostenibles, y cómo asociaciones locales de barrios deprimidos disputan la existencia, creación, o agravación de injusticias medioambientales que resultan de procesos y políticas de (re)vitalización.

(Mediterranean Wetlands Observatory)
Social-ecological systems in the Mediterranean Basin are characterised by high biodiversity and a prolonged cultural influence, leading to the co-evolution of these systems. The unique characteristics of Mediterranean social-ecological systems, current pressures leading to a decline in ecosystem services, and the need for coordinated action are recognised by policies promoting the protection and sustainable use of the region’s heritage.

From Jacobs to the Just City: A foundation for challenging the green planning orthodoxy / Connolly, James J. T. (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Now that Jane Jacobs' ideas are seen as urban planning orthodoxy, it is unclear how her institutional goal of progressive change for the field will carry forward. In the 1960s, Jacobs created the conditions for institutional change by offering a thorough critique of the “Radiant Garden City Beautiful” orthodoxy of urban planning and presenting a solution for the problems that she saw with this approach.

(Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Cities confronted with unsustainable development and climatic changes are increasingly turning to green infrastructure as an approach for growth and climate risk management. In this context, recent scholarly attention has been paid to gentrification, real‐estate speculation and resident displacement in the context of sustainability and green planning in the global North.

Socio-spatial legibility, discipline, and gentrification through favela upgrading in Rio de Janeiro / Comelli, Thaisa (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism) ; Anguelovski, Isabelle Michele Sophie (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Chu, Eric (University of Birmingham. School of Geography, Earth and Environment Sciences)
This paper contributes to global perspectives on gentrification by interrogating the experiences of urban redevelopment and transformation in the global South. Through unpacking the contradictions of public space revitalization and upgrading in two favelas in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, we critically examine changes to the socio-spatial fabric of informal settlements over time.
