Economic and ecological crises are increasingly devastatingly 
intertwined and fuel each other – an ecological-economic complex (or 
rather: vicious circle) that produces pandemics, extreme weather events, 
the slow violence of climate catastrophe, and outright wars. Against 
this backdrop, the Berliner Gazette’s annual conference 2022 edition 
“After Extractivism” asks:

How can we wager our future on the legacies and claims of those who – in 
the past as in the present – have been plunged into existential hardship 
by the ecological-economic complex? And how can we make such struggles a 
source of inspiration for a common cause?

Undoubtedly the heart of the Berliner Gazette (BG) conference, five 
workshops will be looking for answers to these questions. Bringing 
together activists, researchers, and cultural workers from more than 20 
countries, the workshops will take place in parallel on October 13, 14, 
and 15 at the Haus der Demokratie und Menschenrechte (House of Democracy 
and Human Rights) in Berlin.

*Workshop tracks*

The workshops will take different thematic approaches to tackling the 
ecological-economic complex. The titles are: “Rebooting Eco-Justice,” 
“Algorithmic Mindset,” “Disarming Resource Wars,” “Climate and Tech 
Politics,” “Post-1989 Lessons.” Read the descriptions here: 


The workshops will feature a number of selected guests who have been 
invited by the conference organizers. Additional participants are able 
to apply via an open call for registration. More info here:
