Feminist Political Ecology and Degrowth
What to expect?
This Key Conversation (conference stream) will feature a series of pre-event on-line discussions building up to workshops and a plenary at the 8th International Degrowth Conference.
The Feminist Political Economy (FPE) conversations will explore feminisms, relations of care and well-being, with a focus on the following:
- How can we understand care as central within degrowth and at the core of our economies and societies? In what way can economies be rearranged in terms of provisioning that care, taking into account health, aging and ability, whilst degrowing?
- How can we change our relations of care among humans and more-than-human beings so that future societies are just for all living beings? How can we think about degrowth in relation to Covid19 and avoid essentializing nature when talking about these relations?
- How do different strands of feminism such as feminist science and technology, decolonial and eco-feminism contribute to degrowth?
