- How and why they change, expand or rescale their spatial focus
- How and why they are copied by groups in other places
- How and why they interconnect and share resources with other groups
- How meanings and values are constructed and contested within these trans-local and trans-national networks (Miller, 2004)
- How are the understandings of gender/environment relations in one group projected, evaluated and reworked when they engage with groups elsewhere?
- How much have these meanings and values been universalised? (and if so: how do communities in particular places ground these universalised meanings and values and with what implications?)
- Routledge 2007: what about uneven power relations, disagreements and fractures within these networks?
- What about groups that seldom engage with groups elsewhere? Because many urban socio-ecological movements are local and only interested in local issues, in the environmental injustices that affect them, not so much in where mentioned injustices might be relocated.
- Massey 2007: how socio-ecological movements perceive other places and communities and how this influences their responsibilities and interconnections with them
