- This event has passed.
This year, GEF, with the support of Oikos, published an English translation of the book ‘Dare to Care: Ecofeminism as a Source of Inspiration.’ Now we are thrilled to present our Polish translation too, with a webinar that delves deeper into questions of care in our current moment!
About the event
Care includes everything we do to preserve and restore the world. The multiple crises, or perhaps polycrisis that we are facing, show the importance of daring to care. The erosion of the welfare state, the ongoing war in Ukraine, the plundering of the Global South, and the crossing of planetary boundaries are alarming, to say the least. There is also a link between the exploitation of people and nature. Imagine what could happen if we found the courage to care for all people and other earthlings.
Can care offer us a fresh start based on interconnectedness and generosity? How can care, as an emancipatory principle, underpin politics and the economy? In this webinar, we will dive deeper into the content of the essay with author Philsan Osman, and have a Q&A with the audience.
This webinar is part of Feminists in the Environmental Movement, a GEF transnational project that seeks to stimulate conversations around (the intersections of) gender and environmental justice across Europe. The project is implemented with the support of Visio (Finland), Green Economics Institute (UK), Oikos (Belgium), Strefa Zieleni (Poland), Green Thought Association (Turkey), and CDNEE.
