Call for applications: “Pluriverse of Eco-social Justice” Summer School (11-16/7/2022 in Coimbra, PT).

The Ecology and Society Workshop at the Centre for Social Studies, University of Coimbra (ECOSOC, CES), together with the COST Action “Decolonizing Development” (DECOLDEV), and the H2020-ITN projects “Just transition to the Circular Economy” (JUST2CE); and “Listening to Citizen Voices for a Greener Europe” (PHOENIX), as well as social movement and community organizations in Portugal and transnationally, invite applications for the “Pluriverse of Eco-social Justice” Summer School, to be held July 11 to 16 in Coimbra, Portugal. The Summer School aims to provide nurturing conceptual and practical tools for enacting alternative ecosocial horizons.

The mainstream Anthropocene and Climate Change narratives identify a new (geologic) epoch in which the “human species” is the dominant geological force. These narratives have been criticized by scholars and activists who point out that the major changes in the biophysical forces of the planet are due to a particular political-economic system (Capitalism) coupled with its racialized, patriarchal, and colonial logics, in which a particular segment of humanity has caused this crisis.
