We have assembled a team of 20 enthusiastic participants, who are taking part in a series of seminars discussing the theory, experience, and achievements of gender studies from a green policy perspective. This project will culminate in an international conference held in October.
About the Event:
GEF, together with the Green Thought Association is launching a year-long project on gender equality and green politics. Selected participants take part in monthly expert and activist workshops, building knowledge and creating video content on selected topics for wider dissemination.
The next workshop will be held online on the 8th of August, featuring as speaker Emet Değirmenci. The topic that will be covered is Ecofeminism.
Workshops are open to selected applicants only and are held in Turkish, but will culminate in a larger conference in October that includes the participation of international speakers as well.
This seminar is led by Emet Değirmenci who has been working on Ecology and Women based studies for more than 20 years. As a geophysical engineer, who has worked as a seismologist for the Technical University of Istanbul for 14 years, she decided in 1997 to invest her studies and efforts around social-ecological transformation. In 2019 she published a book titled ‘Kadinlar Ekolojik Dönüşümde (Ecological Transformation Through Women’s Eye).
Participation in this seminar is closed, and participants have already been selected.
