More information about the panel
Countless initiatives around the world working towards transformative change are finding support and resources through international network organizations. These networks promote global solidarity while also acknowledging deep local identities and traditions. However, these movements need to challenge, alter and replace existing power structures in order to promote their alternatives approaches and address existing economic systems, commercial interests and political ideologies. What can we do to help ignite the transformative power of translocal collective action?
During this event, we will discuss the potential of translocal connections to enable just sustainability transitions from the perspective of multiple organizations, projects and networks. Speakers, panelists and facilitators include:
- Kali Akuno from Cooperation Jackson
- Sophia Silverton from ICLEI and UrbanA
- Sol Trumbo Vila from TNI and Transformative Cities Initiative
- Namita Kambli from E3G
- Camila Sarria-Sanz from Translocal Lives Project
- Flor Avelino from DRIFT and Vital Cities & Citizens
- Visual notes of the event will be taken by artist Julia van Leeuwen.
After the talks, there will be an interactive discussion with all participants. Questions will be crowdsourced: participants will be invited to drop their comments and questions directly in the chat. This is followed by a ‘chat storm’ discussion. In this format, participants nominate the questions that they would like to have discussed by the speakers. This way, participants decide what issues are talked about and what direction the conversation takes.
More information about the agenda will follow soon.
