Are you interested in ecofeminist thought and how it can help us understand and rethink our societies today? Then join us in Brussels for an open, long-form conversation on the question of care in all its facets.
About the Event:
This discussion will be a curated safe space for participants to engage in a long-form dialogue and open-ended conversation based on the booklet: ‘Voor wie willen we zorgen?: Ecofeminisme als inspiratiebron’ (Who do we wish to care for? Ecofeminism as inspiration).
We hope to create a stimulating environment to think and discuss about the ethics of care and the importance for everyone to be listened and have a voice. Everyone is invited to engage with each other on their visions and versions of care.
The session will be followed by bodywork as aftercare (breathing exercises, stretching etc.) to help solidify the connections between self and the self, self and the fellow participant, and ultimately towards self and the world we live in. All are welcome!
Our second Ecofeminist round table takes place in Brussels, as part of the larger Ecopolis event. Ecopolis is the perfect annual day to meet people who care about a sustainable future. Because ecological challenges know no national or linguistic borders, Ecopolis is diverse, international, and interactive.
Ecopolis invites Belgian and international authors to debate the transition towards a socio-ecological society. Inspiring books, documentaries and debates between writers, academics and civil society thinkers about ecology, economy and society are at the heart of Ecopolis.
This round table will be facilitated by Philsan Osman, who studies African Languages and Cultures at Ghent University. She is from Somalia and is an aspiring writer, activist, and community builder.
Ecopolis takes place on October 24th, 2021, at the Kaaitheater in Brussels. The ecofeminist round table is open to all participants of this event.
Tickets are on sale via this link. Please note that, in line with Brussels measures against COVID-19, a COVID-Safe Ticket will be required for entry.
This round table is organised by the Green European Foundation, with the support of Oikos and the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation.
