The Green European Foundation is bringing together twenty selected Feminist Climate Ambassadors from across Europe for the second session of this (online) training program.
About the Event:
Our aim is to build bridges across Europe for feminist climate change advocates and activists. This training will equip selected Feminist Climate Ambassadors with the tools needed to get their message through in their own region and media, to support sustainable and feminist community-level impact across Europe. In addition, the training provides space for more political level conversation on the intersections of gender and climate change.
The theme of the second meeting is future. What would our ideal futures look like? What would it take to get there? How do we stay optimistic and focused?
This training is part of the project Feminists in the Climate Movement, organised by the Green European Foundation with the support of Visio, the Green Economics Institute, Strefa Zieleni, and Oikos. While the training is for selected participants only, the project also features a webinar series and summer school, which are open to the general public.
Maia Fandi – Facilitator at Educational Centre Visio (Finland)
Noni Makuyana – co-founder of Decolonising Economics
12:10 – 12:40 Guest Expert: Noni Makuyana on Decolonising Economics
“It’s not a coincidence that under neoliberal capitalism, racial inequality exists. Race is a social construct, and one that was used to further the colonial project, in pursuit of ever-growing economic wealth and power. It is essential to identify strategies that dismantle the system of white supremacy in the pursuit of a just transition.”
- As our two previous public webinars have revolved around economics, climate, and gender, Noni Makuyana’s and Gubbi Bola’s work on decolonising economics completes the picture we have received, and offers an essential perspective to our understanding of just transition.
12:40-13:00 Discussion on assignments
13:00-15:30 Future Frequency workshop
- Future Frequency is a workshop method which combines future-oriented thinking with change-making. The core of the three-step method involves challenging assumptions about the future, imagining preferred futures and making them a reality. Facilitated by Maia Fandi.
