Resignification Practices of Youth in Zona da Mata, Brazil in the Transition Toward Agroecology

Abstract: Youth play an important role in the transition toward agroecology through practices of resignification. This article discusses how young people resignify agroecology by taking part in education initiatives that originate from social movements, and that aim to strengthen young peoples’ abilities to reflect on their practices and realities. We used action research to create films with young agroecologists in the region of Zona da Mata Mineira, Brazil. Our analysis draws on films, interviews and participatory obs… Show more

“…Undoubtedly, more empirical research is needed to help foster our understanding of such 'chains of leverage' (Fischer and Riechers 2019), but when extending the scope from human-nature connectedness to a broader environmental sustainability context, several studies support the idea that arts-based research could facilitate these different types of changes in a system (e.g. De Groot and Zwaal 2007; Zurba and Berkes 2014; Heras and Tàbara 2016; Rathwell and Armitage 2016;Johansson and Isgren 2017;Lopez et al 2018;Goris et al 2019).…”

“…In environmental education, arts-based methods (e.g. theatre exercises, drawings, playful methods) could engage pupils in a process of resignification of key concepts, for example, about agroecology (Goris et al 2019). Raatikainen et al (2020) apply an arts-based research methodology to conduct an environmental education activity with pupils regarding the management and conservation of meadows and wood-pastures in Finland, focussing on conceptualizing the human-nature relationship.…”

“…Integral to the PIAL efforts at social change is the active fostering of inter-generational knowledge exchange through inclusion of youth in the project's gender-based activities. This focus on young people is something that Goris et al (2019) argue is fundamental for transitions toward agroecology. In the words of one research participant, working actively with youth on issues of both agriculture and gender ensures that "a new household culture is being transmitted to boys and girls."…”
