Abstract

This chapter introduces Laclau and Mouffe’s theory of radical democracy and related ideas about discourse. It adopts Riedy’s analysis of hegemonic and counter-hegemonic discourses of sustainability and follows him in suggesting that discourse coalitions are necessary to defeat neoliberal hegemony. Agreements across counter-hegemonic discourses suggest the need for radical global citizenship education that accommodates agonistic pedagogy allowing students and teachers to articulate sustainability within and across discourses. The Gesturing Towards Decolonial Futures Collective suggests how such education can address post-developmentalism with pedagogy designed to enable students to know, be, relate and desire differently and so realize sustainability.
