By War on Want, Tipping Point UK and JunteGente
Post-Extractive Futures, a workshop series taking place between February 1-3 (11am NY/Bogota, 4pm London/Dakar), is a space of mutual learning about the world we can build guided by the questions: What can we do together that we can’t do alone? How do we support each other in building the ecological and reparative worlds we need?
We are very excited to welcome you all to Post-Extractive Futures, a 3-day workshop series, taking place between February 1-3.
Post-Extractivist Futures is a space for mutual learning and solidarity-weaving amongst activists dreaming, enacting and mobilising toward postcapitalist, ecological, feminist, afro-diasporic, intergenerational, indigenous and decolonial futures.
These rich futures do not fit under a single banner, but are associated with key ideas such as climate justice, just transitions, Green New Deals, Eco-Social Pacts, abolition, and degrowth. The goal of these conversations is to share experiences, lessons learned, cautions, recommendations, provocations and inspirations. We also aim to build connections between movements in different regions, to enact solidarity and strengthen alliances across borders.
