Decolonial Ecology Day — The Forest

Together, let’s foster an ecological mindset and initiate actions that acknowledge racial, social, and decolonial struggles while seeking harmony with the non-human world. This day is devoted to forests—places that are essential to the flourishing of beings, cultures, and the vital forces of imagination and resistance. Forest protectors, lovers, and researchers will bring their sylvan expertise to the Festival’s HQ.
