Regarding the ISEE Board, I am interested in favoring the increase of membership, not only academic but also of social movements, among others, in general. Furthermore, I would like to contribute to the integration and socialization of the knowledge present in ISEE and regional societies, similar to what we have been developing among the regional societies of Latin America. In this way, a greater social and environmental impact could be achieved, as well as learning from practice, new reflections and better understanding alternative economies for life, thinking about transitions towards environmental justice. For example, to develop virtual courses in ecological economics and political ecology, integrating field trips, arts performance, and dialogues with policy makers.
