FRACTAL is a collective of women researchers who share aspirations and concerns, passion and determination, to address the socio-ecological challenges the world is facing. FRACTAL emerges as a group identity to make visible a space for work, collaborative learning and mutual support among women scientists. As such, our goal is to contribute to the necessary transformation of integrated systems of nature and society by addressing real problems, through action research and training based on three pillars:
From an inclusive perspective, we integrate various kind of knowledges through the facilitation of spaces iwhere the voices of different social actors can be heard
Inter and Transdisciplinarity
We use theoretical and methodological approaches that draw from the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and arts
Commitment to Transformation
We work from feminism, weaving networks between people, organisations and institutions, getting involved in direct actions on the ground.
We work for the (co)creation, dissemination and transfer of knowledge related to sustainability and social-ecological justice
