Decolonising sustainability

Sustainability sciences are full of hidden biases

More detailed information

When you hear about ecology, veganism, ecofeminism, what persona do you see?

At first glance, sustainability sciences may seem as if they’re neutral ways to study how we can sustain the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

The problem is that since ecological transition and sustainability have become mainstream, we often associate sustainability, ecofeminism, and veganism with white people.

This means that sustainability sciences are full of hidden biases.

It is important to confront the colonial legacies that, to this day, perpetuate the notion that certain lives and ways of life are ‘unproductive’, ‘destructive’ and so on. For example, the "Southern" nations would be lagging behind in environmental protection, and non-western foods would be less healthy.

By what means can we forge links between feminist and anti-racist struggles on the one hand and environmental struggles on the other? How can we raise awareness of the green practices that exist in non-male and non-white circles?
