Event details


This talk will explore the foundation of Casa Congo, a small NGO on the pacific coast of Nicaragua, and its mission and vision. Their Agroecology program responds to the environmental challenges faced by the community and the potential of agroecology to confront those challenges and support local food sovereignty. The talk is an invitation to those attending and CAWR students to consider possibilities for research activities and other projects that could support the community driven agroecological transformation of the territory.


Lucas Sebastián Worsdell is a PhD student at CAWR and a co-founder of Casa Congo, Nicaragua, which opened in 2017. He is currently studying for a PhD at CAWR on Co-innovation of Caribbean Agroecological Transitions (CiCAT), supervised by Georges Felix, Julia Wright and Charley Hill-Butler. As part of CiCAT he will be exploring, stories, counter mapping, and co-design of agroecology in the Caribbean, specifically Puerto Rico.
