    Activity Date: Wednesday, May 4, 2022 - 14:30 UTC
    Duration: 90 min
    Brief Description:

    As we face the multiple crises of the current moment, knowledge is vital if we are to find our way towards a more sustainable world. To date, much of knowledge production has been in the hegemonic domain of narrow western academic institutions. This ignores the epistemes of knowledge that exist outside of modern science and narrows the idea of learning to what happens in formal classrooms. This session takes the starting point that learning and knowledge production can be diverse processes using a multiplicity of methods and learning spaces. In this session, we will introduce some of the different approaches and then have a deliberative discussion about how different types of learning & critical pedagogies and knowledge can be lifted to support emancipatory praxis. The session will focus more on the doing of such pedagogies and how we can learn and share with each other as we move out of the confines of mainstream thinking about learning.

    This session will feature reflections from The Alternatives Project (USA), Alternative (Canada) and CEEAL (Mexico)...The format of this hybrid session will be an introduction followed by some reflections from groups that are working on alternatives to the hegemonic system. We will then open the space for a shared conversation on the topic, drawing from the experiences of everyone present in the session and are open to creative ideas for this sharing.
