Video documentation of the course “Tactics for Agroecological Transition”. This course was a co-learning process for collectives, in which we shared and elaborated tools and tactics for agroecological struggle.
We’re excited to present ‘Towards Agroecological Futures: how to facilitate local agroecological transitions‘, an inspiring text that presents a precise analysis of our current food system crises and the need for agroecology, at the same time as offering a practice-oriented toolkit for action and collective process.
This is an episode that features two German struggles for access to land: the ABL (Association of Peasant Farmers in Germany) and Ackersyndikat (Field Syndicate – a platform for collective farm ownership and operation).

How can we tackle the gas price crisis in a socially just way? What is the right to energy, and how can we build coalitions between trade unions and the climate movement?
A conversation with Kieran Pradeep from the Right to Energy Coalition, and Friends of the Earth Europe
Fossil gas is an urgent example of the tension between social and climate issues. While climate scientists point out the use of methane gas must be phased out, millions of people are suffering from rising gas prices. How does Russia’s war on Ukraine and Germany’s suspension of the NordStream 2 pipeline from Russia change this terrain? And is it possible to transition away from gas without an explosion in energy poverty – or a planned decrease in energy use?

In this episode we speak with Amaranta Herrero, an ecofeminist sociologist and agricultural engineer who is currently coordinator of the Barcelona 2030 Sustainable Food Strategy and works for the Barcelona Strategic Metropolitan Plan of Barcelona City Council. Cities are where vast amounts of food are consumed and discarded, but how may we think food production and distribution from the viewpoint of the city?
In this episode we speak to Andrea Ghelfi from the Italian food sovereignty network Genuino Clandestino. What does the Italian peasant movement have to do with urban social centres and migration struggles? Why do peasants insist on selling “genuine, but clandestine food” in Italy, and what does it mean to reinvent rural life and the peasantry as a community of practice?
