From March 25 to March 27 2024

Florianópolis, Brasil | Zoom

The conference will bring together scholars, activists, politicians, and government officials to share ideas and analyses of the current climate crises from a world-historical perspective and to make plans for survival and mitigation of increasingly frequent and severe global and local natural and anthropogenic disasters, and to lay the tracks for a more just, democratic, and collectively rational world society. 

This will be a hybrid conference with both local face-to-face and remote participants who will be able to present, discuss and view other speakers and local and remote audiences as well.

The face-to-face part of the colloquium will take place at the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Florianópolis. 

Remote access for speakers and audience from South America, Africa, Europe, North America, South and East Asia and Oceania will be provided through Zoom Platform. The conference will be primarily in English but translation captioning will be available as well.

The reach of hybrid conferences can be extended, and global participation can be enhanced by organizing local hubs in which participants come together to presente their own papers, and to tune in to, and interact with, the live conference being held in Florianópolis.

The conference organizers are encouraging researchers to investigate the evolution of the modern world-system, and plans for moving toward a less unequal and more cooperative global society. Issues that may be addressed at the conference include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • National and Transnational Social Movements for Climate Action
  • The Causes and Consequences of Natural and Human-Caused Disasters
  • Similarities and Differences between the vulnerabilities and capabilities of Core, Semiperipheral and Peripheral national societies and states
  • Ecosocialist planning for a resilient, more just and sustainable world society.
