Chapter 1: Online Programme
The first chapter of Struggles for Sovereignty (SFS) was a 9-week online programme, consisting of discussions, sharing sessions, and a reading group. We engaged communities from Indonesia and other parts of the world to address current and persistent social and ecological urgencies (which the Covid-19 pandemic made even more apparent) as a tool to distribute research, start conversations and generate solidarity.
The online programme spanned a sharing session with collective and community kitchens, developed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic; conversations on eco-feminist practices and futures; a look at initiatives that mobilize rural histories for social justice and land rights; alternative farming and shepherding schools; the use of alternative / DIY technologies in climate resistance and land stewardship; and the connections between ecological justice and decoloniality. All events took place on Zoom and were live streamed via Facebook or YouTube. Please find the recordings of the discussion series below.
