If you're in Rotterdam this July (22nd-25th), keep reading!
Together with Santiago Pinyol and Luke Murphy we're organizing this year's edition of Relearn in and around the city.
Relearn is an intensive IRL three day collective learning experiment with as many teachers as participants from all backgrounds and disciplines to learn from-and-teach each other, beyond the traditional paradigms of education from an interest in free culture and practices of care.
This year's edition will take place in and focus on Rotterdam. We aim to explore the importance of self-organisation and the use of experimental tools to build alternative systems and economies within the urban fabric of Rotterdam.
Apply by the 30th of June! Find the full text of the open call here -> http://relearn.be/2021/
Dystopian 1962 pro-DDT essay from Monsanto
In 1962, Monsanto released an essay called “The Desolate Year” describing an entire year in the US without the use of pesticides (DDT in particular), in which “the garotte of nature rampant began to tighten”. Worth a read for the gripping description of the destruction of (female) monstrous bugs and the final reports on DDT as a life saver. #monsanto https://iseethics.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/monsanto-magazine-1962-the-desolate-yeart.pdf
