A second workshop on the Imperial Mode of Living has taken place as a collaboration between SOC21 and the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung. Co-sponsored by the Dutch SOWS and the IIRE. Coordinators: Ulrich Brand (Vienna), Markus Wissen (Berlin) and Marcel van der Linden (Amsterdam).
We live in a highly technology driven world. Since the industrial revolution the relationship between the urbanised working class and the soil has been lost. Science and technology are human endeavours which elevate humankind from hunter and gathering societies to the civilisation we experience.
