Abstract

This paper argues the need for a transformational revaluing of the rights to the city through an unmaking of social fabric, since upcycling reframes existing power relations based on ownership of land and people and excludes the rights of children and the earth. It highlights the need for environmental education. Indicating that transition requires a paradigm shift, it employs a fractured, feminist bricolage. Operating from within a Western academic perspective it concludes that the work of remaking the city on the basis of social justice is a shifting process of encountering self and others in our own and other worlds.
