This seminar is the result of close collaboration between the École Urbaine de Lyon and Health of Mother Earth Foundation, an NGO founded in Nigeria by Nnimmo Bassey - the guest of honor of this 3rd edition of "At the School of the Anthropocene" . HOMEF is focused on “unearthing the systemic roots (social, political and economic factors) of environmental and food challenges” in order to restore memory and dignity towards a life in harmony with the planet Earth.

Food, extractivism, ecology : three thematic sections of a general issue. From the particular issue of agriculture, food and food sovereignty, through the colonial heritage in the management of resources, to the analyses of the notion of green colonialism. These meetings and discussions between various actors from various horizons are an attempt to highlight the exhaustion of natural resources and the mesh between their contemporary management and the colonial heritage.
