David gave the first SCI annual lecture, entitled ‘Material participation and sustainable practice’, which explored the idea of - and demand for - political participation that is just, prefigurative, sustainable, and based on material actions.

While there is a long history of material participation in social movements, recent movements incorporate a shift in relations between human and nonhuman as a political act.
