Testalepre Retreat 2022 - Ecological Reparation and the Politics of Just Transitions

23-25 September 2022, Agriturismo Testalepre, Greve in Chianti (FI), Italy

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.
