How to Make Kin in the Great Green Wall

M Griffiths



This project aims to dismantle the greenwashed narrative put forth about the Great Green Wall - an afforestation project in China's three northmost regions aiming to plant 100 billion trees to stop the expansion of the Gobi Desert south. Citizens of the Gobi are provided with a toolkit to generate agency through commoning knowledge that will challenge the State narrative, help us live alongside the Great Green Wall, and lead us towards an unexpected futurity. The toolkit calls for a paradigm shift: we reframe our relationship among other non-human subjects and begin to make kin with and within the Gobi.
