In light of the ongoing worldwide effects of COVID-19, EXALT has decided to postpone its international scientific conference "Concurrent Crises and Sustainable Futures: Global Extractivisms and Alternatives" which was set to take place at the University of Helsinki on October 20-23, 2020. More information on the postponement can be found here.
Instead, EXALT is organizing an online event "EXALT Symposium 2020 - Extractivisms and Alternatives" during the same time as the conference was set out to be. Now more than ever critical discussion and collaborative knowledge creation is needed around the pressing crises resulting from extractivist practises. Join the discussion in October and become a part of our community!
Extractivisms and Alternatives
EXALT Symposium 2020 - Extractivisms and Alternatives is a series of convivial online discussions stretching across three days on 21.-23. of October, 2020. The event draws together diverse critical analyses of the phenomena of global extractivisms and the myriad alternatives pursued both in theory and practice. The EXALT Symposium 2020 aims to contribute to, expand and deepen the concept of extractivism and the role of alternatives beyond the conventional usage connected to natural resources.
The Symposium consists of a main Roundtable-discussion with some of the world’s leading scholars working on extractivisms, followed by five scientific sessions covering different aspects of global extractivisms and alternatives.
More information on the event and speakers will be published closer to the event.
