Megan and Ananda Marin’s paper discusses their “work in community-based design research and studies of everyday parent–child interactions, we begin to describe emergent structural principles that may desettle normative time-space and nature–culture relations. In addition, we describe specific practices and pedagogical forms that expand views of human and non-human agency, as well as present and possible
Meixi and her colleagues write about their “work in communities to redesign approaches to learning in schools in ways that sustain and promote life. Drawing on a case study of an learning movement that grew from Mexico to an urban Indigenous school in Thailand, we show how educators might respond to the specific needs within their communities, repair the fracturing of humans from nature, and orient us to life-giving forms of activity that are beneficial beyond our current crises and into the future.”
