EN / At the edges of big cities, the world’s often unnoticed energy centers are arising to supply the lifeblood of economies that have subjected themselves to the “compulsion to grow.” But alternatives and lived counter-designs are also cultivated in the so-called energy periphery, priming the transition to a better world, as scholar-activist Andrea Vetter shows in her contribution to the Berliner Gazette’s video talks series “After Extractivism.”
