PUBLIC EVENT: SUSTAINABLE ECONOMY AND CARE
Womens networks and feminist economists across the world have called for a paradigm shift in economic thinking and activities. Such a radical change would account for valuing the (unpaid) care work of (predominantly) women and the environment, beyond their commodification and incorporation into the market economy
A public event in the evening of February 12, 2013, presents and discuss' the outcome of an international workshop, which will take place February 11 and 12, 2013 in Berlin.
Guiding questions of the discussion will be:
- How can the principles of Care and Green Economy be brought together to promote an ecological-sustainable and socially just economic model?
- Which structural changes are necessary for bringing into practice such a new economic framework?
- Who are the actors and which platforms and processes are important to integrate of a care perspective into the framework of a green and sustainable economy?
