kuda.org recommends and participates in: Berliner Gazette project, October 2022, AFTER EXTRACTIVISM

Berliner Gazette project
October 2022


The Berliner Gazette (BG) 2022 project AFTER EXTRACTIVISM launches its intervention at a critical juncture: Economic and ecological crises are increasingly devastatingly intertwined and fuel each other – an ecological-economic complex (or rather: vicious circle) that produces pandemics, extreme weather events, the slow violence of climate catastrophe, and outright wars.

After Extractivism · BG°2022 Project
How can we build our future on the legacies and claims of those who, yesterday as today, have been plunged into existential hardship by the ecological-economic complex? And how can we make such struggles a source of inspiration for a common cause?

The entire three-day program takes place in the Haus der Demokratie und Menschenrechte (House of Democracy and Human Rights) in Berlin from October 13th till 15th 2022, the event is structured in different formats: public talks, workshops, essays and a publication that will unify all activities.
