Let’s talk about plants.

Can their adaptive and evolutionary strategies serve as inspirations for social resistance and political change? What language should we use to talk about plants? With what kind of language to talk to plants? On what foundations to build an ethic of human-plant relations? Who are the weeds? Where to look for the point of balance between human ideas and the reality of the plant world? These and other questions will be raised in a debate with cultural creators, who in their theoretical reflections and their practices refer to plants in various ways, making them the object of research, metaphors and conceptual operations, establishing relations with them and seeking understanding.
