Just Futures

How do we imagine the future? What kinds of landscapes, which bodies, whose voices, what types of powers and privileges are included? How do we plan to start living it now? This FIG will explore different socio-ecological visions of the future that are now emerging from our uneven planetary conditions. We’ll focus especially on how legacies of inequity, exclusion, and degradation are making possible alternate ways of understanding the world and humanity, and inspiring diverse movements for social and environmental justice – conceiving and building more just futures.
