Join Dirk Holemans, Philsan Osman, and Marie-Monique Franssen as they discuss their recently published essay ‘Voor wie willen we zorgen?’
About the Event
The global Covid crisis brought healthcare into the spotlight. Care, however, extends beyond the strictly medical in that it includes everything we do to preserve and restore the world. The erosion of the welfare state, the plundering of the Global South and the crossing of planetary boundaries is alarming. There is also the link between the exploitation of people and of nature. Imagine we found the courage to truly care for all people and other earthlings, for our unique living world.
Inspired by ecofeminists worldwide, the authors wonder: can care be a new starting point, based on connectedness and generosity? Can care, as an emancipatory principle, underpin politics and economics?
In this webinar, we will dive deeper into the content of the essay, followed by a Q&A with the audience.
This is the last of four public webinars as part of the project “Feminists in the Climate Movement,” organised by GEF with the support of Visio, Green Economics Institute, Oikos, and Fundacja Strefa Zieleni. With a closed training programme for selected Feminist Climate Ambassadors as well as a series of public events, the project seeks to build capacity among (potential) climate leaders, while highlighting the gendered aspects and impacts of the climate crisis to a broader audience.
Date and time: Monday, December 6th from 19:30 to 21:00 CET.
Audience: This webinar will take place in English and is open to the general public.
Registration: Please register in advance via this link.
This event is organised by the Green European Foundation, with the support of Oikos and with the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation.
