Young researchers thoughts and messages from RECOMS 2nd training

14 young researchers got together within the frame of RECOMS second training event in February in Coventry, UK to deal with various community projects and work with local stakeholders on food sovereignty and agroecology. One of the groups jointly composed a piece on the blog 'Food democracy...how?' about their thoughts and reflections. 

New blog on community eco-stories from RECOMS fellow

Scott Davis, RECOMS fellow started his blog early this year on his research. In his words, the blog is "about local environments and spaces, which are changing at pace, therefore how communities’ feel attached to, and responsible for adjusting their places, is also constantly evolving. At a governance level, there is a social policy drive for “stronger communities” often under the banner of community resilience. Governments are requesting communities to participate more in society and therefore become more ‘’resilient’’ through taking responsibility for their local environments.

RECOMS fellow's article published

In the article (Toxic Bios: Toxic Autobiographies—A Public Environmental Humanities Project), the authors present Toxic Bios, a public environmental humanities project that aims to co-produce, gather, and make visible stories of contamination and resistance.The project aims to foster environmental justice (EJ) through enhancing narrative justice, contrasting toxic narratives, and uncovering unheard stories. Throughout the article, they place Toxic Bios within the larger field of the environmental humanities, suggesting a series of areas in which it can contribute to the EJ field.
