Alexandre Faustino



Nature always had a place of wonder for me as a kid growing up in a metropolis like São Paulo, an intense city that offers rare glimpses of green, fresh air and clean running water. Throughout my academic education I sought knowledge and practices that could guide process of ecological regeneration in our settlements and territories, with a special interest in the flows of water through urban space. This journey revealed to me the central role of people’s power to promote local and systemic change when individuals and communities come together for action through emancipatory practices. My work draws from political ecology and urban geography literature to ask how waterscapes, or the ways society relates with water, can be re-imagined and governed with more socio-ecological equality.
