Is everybody on board? Less heard perspectives for a social-ecological transformation

25.10.2022  |  Projektausschreibung

Kreisau-Initiative invites climate & social justice advocates to a two-part event in which they can expand their understanding of systemic approaches to environmental and social issues and build their skills for advocacy in the field of socio-ecological transformation.

Join us for a book release and a workshop!

Date: 18.-19.11.2022

Place: Berlin, Museum of Capitalism and Liane

PART 1: Presenting the handbook "Walking the path less travelled: Collective steps towards a culturally sensitive education in the context of social-ecological transformation"
18.11.2022, Museum of Capitalism

In the context of a German-Polish-Czech cooperation of educational practitioners, we have compiled different perspectives on how to nurture a culture of change. Thus, in this anthology, we present different perspectives, suggestions and practical tips regarding the role that culture plays in the implementation of practices for socio-ecological transformations with an aim to support people to reflect on their educational work in a culturally sensitive way. Given that the anthology advocates for broader alliances for a just socio-ecological transformation, the book presentation will be followed by an interactive workshop on classism delivered by the Museum of Capitalism Berlin.

2 pm – 3.30 pm Handbook presentation "Auf neuen Pfaden. Kollektive Schritte zu einer kulturell sensiblen Bildung im Kontext sozial-ökologischer Transformation” / “Walking the path less travelled: Collective steps towards a culturally sensitive education in the context of social-ecological transformation" (The handbook will appear in English, German, Polish and Czech language.)

3.30 pm –7 pm Workshop on classism and its relation to social-ecological transformation

7 pm dinner

We will analyse the colonial and neo-colonial history, dynamics of and responsibilities for the current global environmental crisis. It shall introduce decolonial and anti-racist transformative solutions and approaches, as it relates to neo-colonial extractivism and the decolonisation of environmental justice and the society at large.
