The Future of Eastern Europe and Ecodemocracy is a four-part podcast series exploring key issues affecting Eastern Europe from a Green perspective, such as War, Peace, Energy and Green Youth and Activism. The podcast features interviews with the delegates that attended the Future of Eastern Europe Conference, held in Riga in June 2022, as well as other activists and Green actors.
To begin the series, we invited four activists from different parts of Eastern Europe to discuss the war in Ukraine and the history, geopolitics, and current situation in some post-soviet countries. We also discussed the role of NATO in this context and the notion of peace and security.
The second episode of the podcast focuses on energy and its role in participatory energy transitions. As part of this narrative, our guests discuss modern societies’ reliance on fossil fuels and geopolitical ramifications and the possibilities for a sustainable just and democratic transition.
Focusing on the relationship between ecology and democracy, the third episode of the Podcast on the Future Of Eastern Europe and Ecodemocracy explores how we could make our governance systems more ecological, sustainable and inclusive.
