How do we engage with the threat of social and environmental degradation while creating and maintaining liveable and just worlds?

The authors explore practices of repairing damaged ecologies across different locations and geographies and offer innovative insights for the conservation, mending, care and empowerment of human and nonhuman ecologies.

“This is an inspiring call for creative and careful experimentation to reimagine and recraft possibilities for shared life in difficult times.” Thom van Dooren, University of Sydney

"As fossil capitalism ravages the planet, foregrounding resistant acts of ecological reparation is critical in imagining and realizing system change – to which this book contributes with global reach and interdisciplinary scope." T.J. Demos, University of California, Santa Cruz

"… an expansive and compelling collection, by world-leading and emergent scholars, of the critical importance of ecology and relationality in both theorizing reparative justice and detailing practices of hopeful care." Mark Jackson, University of Bristol
