Launching AndersUtrecht Podcast Series

The AndersUtrecht network, which Casco is a part of, has launched a new podcast series that brings together scholars and grassroots organizations. AndersUtrecht is a transdisciplinary network that aims to strengthen the cooperation between grassroots initiatives working towards ecological sustainability and social change in the Utrecht Region. It celebrates the variety among existing initiatives that deal with the societal challenges in creative ways, and fosters dialogue between these organizations as well as with affiliated scholars.

In this podcast series, representatives of these organizations enter into discussion with different scholars to discuss how they tackle the challenges of sustainability transformation from below. These discussions explore the shared ideas between academics working on organizational alternatives and local initiatives experimenting with real alternatives to the default capitalist model. The podcast series, which will be released monthly, illustrates the breadth and variety of grassroots organizations in and around Utrecht, while also showing how much common ground there is for collaboration and transformation. They thereby represent an important step in strengthening the dialogue between Utrecht University and grassroots, while drawing attention to the diversity of practices and ideas that circulate amongst the members of AndersUtrecht for social change.

In their kickoff our Marianna Takou joined the conversation and hosted the recording at the Casco office. Find the episodes and more information via the player below or via Spotify.
