Building Agroecological Struggles : celebrating lively landscapes of collective care and resistance Across many movements and places, there is dense work underway to grow the farming and food that we need, through care, experimentation, resistance and solidarity. Look at this terrain of entwined struggles for lively futures, against extractive and exploitative agri-industries, for territories full of beauty and collective care. We – the Common Ecologies earthcare strand together with illustrator Amanda Priebe – made this image to celebrate the wealth, power and connectedness of our struggles, the many tools and tactics we share and the communities we build. This illustration is a puzzle of images from different processes, places and stories in Europe, that we learned from in our 2023 course on Tools and Tactics for Agroecological Transition. It goes with the booklet on Building Agroecological Struggles that we edited together from this process. In the booklet, you can read about all you see here – different tactics and initiatives, why and how our struggles are connected, across rural and urban movements, human and more-than-human, across agriculture, anti-racism, feminism, ecology… Those are the puzzle pieces we need to build liveable and desirable futures of food, labour, relating, repair and reclaiming.
