Abstract

Members of the WEGO (Wellbeing, Ecology, Gender and cOmmunity) ITN, part of the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement, would like to organise a workshop to introduce the theoretical and methodological practices of Feminist Political Ecology to Environmental Justice research. The WEGO-ITN is made up of scholar-activists working on Feminist Political Ecology (FPE) at institutions around the world, and research is broadly engaged in community strategies to build equitable, sustainable and resilient futures. As well as pursuing transformations towards sustainability and environmental justice, FPE researchers are also pursing ransformations of the ethics, methods, epistemologies and practices of research.

In this workshop we invite participants to join members and associates of the WEGO network to explore the key insights and perspectives that have come from the practices of doing FPE research. FPE researchers will be invited to prepare creative responses to questions which will form the basis of a facilitated discussion exploring key themes such as scholar-activism, ethics, scales and methods in relation to their work with struggles for environmental justice.The workshop will be recorded with the intention that it can become a learning resource.
