Lucas Barrero García

Lucas Barrero is a PhD student at the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology, Autonomous University of Barcelona (ICTA-UAB). His research looks into the study of the concept of “sacrifice zones”, with special interest in the Tinto river in the southwest of the Iberian Peninsula as an example of a regional sacrifice zone and its global connections with other sacrifice territories. He develops his research in a transdisciplinary way combining approaches from Ecological Economics, Political Ecology, Environmental Humanities, Critical Anthropology and Critical Feminist Geography among other disciplines of the Socio-Environmental Sciences. He studied Environmental Sciences and Biology at the University of Girona and later a master’s degree in Agroecology at the Pablo de Olavide University. During these years he participated and coordinated several collectives mostly linked to the Youth Climate Strikes.  Beyond current research, he is also very interested in the question of how to communicate the different current socio-environmental crises in order to mobilize the imagination towards alternative futures. He also loves walking and bird watching in the dehesas.
