Caring for and nurturing the soil – Umbela Conversatorio #4

In connection with our 2021 Methods theme, the Mexico-based NGO Umbela – Transformaciones Sostenibles has held a series of online events on the theme of ‘Cultivating Knowledges’.

In this fourth conversation, María, Ingrid and Marila talk about what it means to care for and nurture long-term transformation processes.

They share learnings from their experiences and give some clues to look at when we get involved in this type of processes. In this space, the role of beauty, ruins, grief and wounds stands out, linked to the responsibility to care and the right to be cared for.

The Cultivating Knowledges series contributes to the STEPS Centre’s Methods theme. The webinars, led by Umbela together with LANCIS-IE-UNAM, IIMAS-UNAM and SOS-ASU, have explored alternative knowledge and belief systems with insights from Latin America, and how they can offer inspiration in ‘unlearning’ many of our inherited ways of seeing the world and universe around us.
