We continue our discussions on ecofeminism as a mobilising concept for a better Europe, this time deepening our intersectional understanding and delving into the idea of queer ecofeminism!
About the Event
For the past two years, the Green European Foundation and its partners across Europe have been exploring the concept of ecofeminism in all its facets, especially the lessons it holds for the multiple crises of care that our continent faces. At the same time, we trained a cohort of Feminist Climate Ambassadors, building skills, knowledge and networking in the connected fights for environmental and gender justice.
This closing webinar will begin with a video message by Barbora Madjisova, a Feminist Climate Ambassador from Slovakia, who will discuss the manifesto created by our ambassadors at COP26, and introduce the topic of queer ecofeminism from a European perspective.
Then, we move into a discussion with a diverse panel of experts, exploring further what queer ecofeminism is, why it is needed, and how it could develop in a Polish context.
