On October 25th, Chileans voted to write, for the first time in their political history, their new constitution. The constitutional convention in charge of composing the new carta magna will be formed by 155 elected members, and will be the first in the world to achieve complete gender parity. The upcoming constitutional process aims to heal the deep divide caused by forty years of neoliberal policies that increased social inequality. Yet, the new constitution will also need to address the ecological challenges that climate change and an extractive economy pose for the future of the country. The presentation will discuss – from a political ecology perspective – the main challenges and debates that are taking place at the moment within academia, civil society and the corporate sector.

This talk is part of the Political Ecology Group meetings series.
