We live in a moment of epochal precarity, amidst irreversible environmental catastrophe that is impacting all life on Earth. Signaling the end of human exceptionalism, this era calls for an urgent redefinition of what it is to be human and a reconfiguration of the relationship between human and Earth. How should education respond to a world of shifting planetary boundaries and collapsing ecosystems?  What education policies, practices, and pedagogies can help re-situate the human within the relational flow of life where everyone and everything – both human and non-human – are deeply interconnected? How can we learn to responsibly encounter and fully engage with a more than human world?

Vivimos en un momento de precariedad de época, en medio de una catástrofe ambiental irreversible. Marcando el final del excepcionalísmo humano, esta era requiere una redefinición urgente de lo que significa ser humano y una reconfiguración en la relación entre los humanos y la tierra. ¿Cómo debería responder la educación a un mundo de fronteras planetarias cambiantes y ecosistemas en colapso? ¿Cómo re-imaginaríamos la educación dentro del movimiento relacional de la vida donde cada uno/a y todo – ambos humanos y no-humanos – estén profundamente interconectados? ¿Cómo podríamos aprender a encontrarnos y comprometernos con un mundo más-que-humano?
