at Werbellinsee

Whether it’s Lützerath, the occupation of fields,
the Charité strike or the transformation of the transport system,

The social and ecological struggles of recent years have shown that climate justice is always in conflict with patterns of private ownership. Instead of a profit-oriented approach, we need a democratic economy that is geared towards the common good. Current debates indicate that socialisation can be the appropriate means of achieving this. But how do we get there?

With our conference “Let’s socialise – socialisation as a strategy for climate justice”, we are specifically inviting pioneering practitioners such as activists, trade unionists and academics to develop a radical practice of socialisation that leads to a social and ecologically just future. Together, we will work on various project ideas and campaigns aimed at democratic management from below in the energy, agriculture, care work and mobility sectors. We will look at past successes and failures of socio-ecological struggles and invite different actors to come together, to exchange and to connect. By focusing on questions of practice and organisation, we are taking the current debates on socialisation from the podiums to the streets and into the workplaces!

Whether you work in the agricultural fields or in hospitals, whether you want to expropriate coal companies or campaign for free public transport: Together we want to learn from and with each other to think and implement socialisation as a practical utopia of lived solidarity for people and the planet.
