A green talk

What will be the manifestation of political ecology in tomorrow’s world? We’re organising an event in Brussels to explore exactly that!

The first Political Ecology Meetings should have started on Thursday, March 12.

In view of the evolution of the spread of the Covid19 coronavirus in Belgium, public health experts and the authorities recommend the cancellation of the gatherings of (more than 1000 people).

1,400 people are expected to participate, in one way or another, in this edition of the Rencontres de l’Ecologie politique, showing their interest in an exceptional program.

Despite the uncertainties about the extent of the risk and the recommendations to be applied, we believe that our fair responsibility is to take part in measures to prevent the spread of the virus as much as possible.

We therefore took the difficult decision to postpone the Political Ecology Meetings in the same place (BEL Brussels, Tour & Taxis site) from 23 to 25 October this year.

Additional information will follow shortly.

A Green Talk is a collection of on-stage presentations of 8 minutes each, part of the Political Ecology Days, organised in Brussels in collaboration with Etopia. Interspersed with breaks, the session lasts 2 hours. This format of short interventions is inspired by Three Minute Thesis and the TEDx format.
