In this chapter, we set out the book’s engagements with feminist political ecology (FPE) theory and practice. We first position the book in relation to FPE discussions underlying how the field is evolving as an open-ended set of discourses responding to the different crises and disruptions caused by the last years of environmental, climate, health, economic and political crises. We then briefly explain how the book was shaped through four years of the relationships and knowledge co-production within the Wellbeing, Ecology, Gender and Community Innovative Training Network (WEGO-ITN), followed by a discussion on the main themes emerging in the book chapters and a finishing with a section indicating where the contributors of the book are heading next. The book is rooted in the networks and journeys between activism, academia and policy arenas reflecting on the many situated conversations and stories within FPE.
