Scientists warn about how modes of production, consumption and trade threaten the environment. In return, citizens change their behaviour and seek alternative ways of life. Yet political ecology is undermined by internal divisions, doctrinal inconsistency and impotence. What is the reason for this under-achievement and can it be fixed?

Political ecology is the only agenda able to build a sustainable world, write the editors of Esprit in an issue on ‘worlds of ecology’. ‘There is no other home for humanity, which must think of itself as part of an interconnected network. Political ecology calls for a deepening of solidarity: between the global North and the global South, between the rich and the poor, between humans and non-humans.’

Terrestrial politics: Between post-human globalization and nationalistic withdrawal, the ecological question pushes us toward the earthly ground, argues Bruno Latour. Traditionally rejected by the Left as reactionary, ‘the question of belonging to a particular soil’ has suddenly become urgent.

Ecological action: While a ‘climatization of the world’ has taken place under the auspices of the UN, writes Amy Dahan, the mere ‘acknowledgment of climate-related risks is clearly insufficient’. Cross-domain political arenas are needed on issues of green finance, industrial policy and the development of Africa.

Also: Ivorian fiction writer Véronique Tadjo on how literature can allow the global North and the global South to become aware of their common destiny. And philosopher Catherine Larrère explains why political ecology, if it is to remain autonomous, must rely on civil movements.
