embodied climate agency - eca is an intersectional, interdisciplinary and interspecies platform dedicated to decentralizing and decanonizing climate-related knowledge in order to harvest inclusive ecological corresponsabilities.
Through first-person accounts and ecological literacy workshops that bring together experiences of climate witnesses*, eca aims to expand embodied and situated knowledge around climate phenomena and contribute to diversifying climate knowledge as well as knowledge standards. This is how eca generates a mediation and translation of the languages of ecological phenomena, facilitating a situated and expanded understanding of these phenomena and their effects on everyday life in order to foster ecocentric listening and, above all, inclusive ecological co-responsibilities.
eca is an ecosystem and a network that seeks to imagine unconventional forms of multi-species repair and transboundary cooperations that go beyond the rhetoric of salvation and the hierarchies that tend to privilege certain lives over others. eca sustains that a plurality of situated responses enables us to have a variety of climatic approaches that adapt to each ecological, cultural, political, economical situation and potentially lead to more inclusive and equitable ecological policies and practices.
eca is a platform conceived by artist Daniela Medina Poch, and activated by contributions from Abdulmazhitova Aisuluu, Abdulmazhitova Aziz, Elena Agudio, Esther Aragón, Esteiman Dario, José Eduardo Sánchez Díaz, Toribio Miguel Expositó, Paula García, Felipe Medina, Khristen Quiambao, Juliana Andrea Albarracin Silva, Erwin Torio, Ching Y U, and Mara-Michelle Wagner.
