Event: “Caring for food/waste commons in the city”

Urban food commons are critical for nourishing the post-growth city. In this talk hosted by the Postgrowth Cities Coalition, Oona Morrow (University of Wageningen) discusses the ways in which food (un)becoming waste can become a site for communing and the more-than-human care in the city. Grassroots socio-technical infrastructures, such as community fridges and community composting, play a role in opening up alternative bodily, emotional and ethical orientations – and are part of practices disrupting and reshaping the city.

The talk takes place at the University of Amsterdam, Roeterseiland Campus: Nieuwe Achtegracht 166, B.304, on 28 February 2024 from 11.30-12.45. All welcome!
