City University of New York
Wednesday, September 23rd
This presentation will focus on the urban farming movement in Eastern Europe/Lithuania as an entry point for discussing the politics and practice of sustainability in the EU, particularly in relation to food self-provisioning, climate change, and civic engagement. It will also consider regional differences and inequalities across the EU as well as the role of gender and generational divides in the EU’s sustainability politics.
