explores the intergenerational childhood memories of children´s participation in various subsistence modes in a rural area in Slovenia and examines the concept of work as a life-sustaining practice.

Project Goals

The project aims to open up alternatives for sustainable and mutual coexistence within our living environments through work experiences that are intrinsically entangled and coevolving with society, the environment, and the economy. Furthermore, the project seeks to retheorize children’s participation in work as not determined by purely economic rationality or educational agendas but as embedded in human and more-than-human relationality, reciprocity, and care.

Funded by
