Together we can build more resilient social movements. In order to be sustainable, we need to find alternatives to call-out culture. We need to cultivate work ethics that don’t lead to physical or emotional burnout. We need to remember those who came before us, and those that have yet to be here.
Come join us for a vibrant conversation through prefigurative politics, collective memory and thinking of our movements as ecosystems. By having these kinds of conversations, we can carry each other into more caring futures.

She is the founder of the MudGirls Natural Building Collective, did a term in office on the local government, lived-off-the- grid for a decade and did a stint traveling with a sustainability-themed circus troupe!
Brett Cox – he/him. I’m a white, male, cis-gendered settler originally from so called ‘Brantford.’ I recently graduated from McMaster Universities’ Globalization and the Human Condition Masters’ program, and I am currently a graduate student in the Community Economic Development program offered through Concordia’s School of Community and Public Affairs. I’m an awkward dreamer, constantly pulled between being an introvert and having a love for humanity, nevertheless passionate about social justice and using my privilege to contribute to cultural disillusion and accountability amongst my circles and working in solidarity with those oppressed and marginalized. My research pursuits involve decolonization and unsettling settler-colonialism, prefigurative politics and revolutionary process, accessible community engagement, cultural disillusionment, and solidarity economy organizing; at the moment my course learning objective involves breaking down societal barriers between ‘adulthood’ and ‘youth’ in the context of radical political organizing.
