Why upland communities need anthropologists?

On 26th June 2022 the “Why Upland Communities Need Anthropologists?” EASA Applied Anthropology Satellite Event will take place in Faggeto Lario (Como), Italy. The event is related to the TransAlp project.

Here is the description of the event:

The environmental and institutional crises we are experiencing require us to develop collective solutions towards a more just and sustainable society. Participation and citizen engagement are more and more crucial, especially in such contexts that are experiencing the withdrawal of public institutions. How can the “ground level” approach practised by anthropologists contribute to social innovation in these context, and foster the recomposition of the interests and logics of the actors concerned in place-based and inclusive processes?

The event will be held in Italian and streamed online. For participating remotely you can fill the following form: https://forms.gle/inSpGFPYYVeJbviQ9
