Tools for building power & care in times of planetary crisis
This summer school, facilitated by the Common Ecologies Collective, will address different aspects of building power and care in the context of climate movements. Key questions we’ll address are: How and why should we build synergies across feminist, agricultural and labour movements? How may we liaise and organise around batshit jobs (those toxic jobs in petrol, car and other industries), building common demands and perspectives? Why does our organising need to be feminist and anti-racist, what tools may we refer to? How can we mobilize care in order to make our movements more resilient, transversal and sweet? Throughout three sessions, we’ll bring in different perspectives on building power: from the body up, from the community up, from the workplace up, from the city up. We’ll be drawing on our work and materials from Common Ecologies courses and podcasts (the Earthcare fieldcast and Spadework podcast) as well as concepts and toolboxes we bring from engagement in different movements.Links:
