South Designs for Planetary Futures: "Re-Imagi(nations) x Françoise Vergès"

Online lecture series of the Critical Urbanisms programme

Forced displacement due to climate change and environmental disaster is expected to affect over one billion people by 2050. What does planetary ecology mean from the perspective and lifeworld of those displaced? This question frames the work of the “Re-imagi(nations)” project team, who will discuss their ongoing work with diverse migrant communities in Morocco. Foregrounding Black and Indigenous ecologies in practices of adaptation to often-hostile environments, the project team will be engaged by scholar, activist, and cultural producer Françoise Vergès. Together, they sketch the outlines of an ecological imaginary rooted in decolonial struggle.

Part of the Critical Urbanisms lecture series "South Designs: Planetary Futures", an eight-month series of discussions reflecting on how design, thought and practiced from the South, forges planetary futures.
