Does urbanism include the non-human world? What can street trees tell us about infrastructure and modernity? This talk will consider Soviet urban and industrial greening projects as a way to think about climate systems, non-Western environmentality, non-Democratic participatory politics, and alternatives to the capitalistic view of the environment as a site of resource extraction.
