Call for Participants

The myriad of ecological transitions that take place across many different places and geographies today mobilise alternative forms of sociability and materiality, more-than-social civil disobedience and community technoscience, new eco-social coalitions, and the quest for reparative justice. During this retreat we will explore theories and practices of ecological reparation and the politics of just transitions.
