WHAT:
“Confronting the Climate Crisis: Feminist Pathways to Just and Sustainable Futures” Virtual Symposium



The symposium aims to call attention not only to the climate crisis, but also to what is at stake in the kinds of “solutions” to it that are proposed. From intersectional feminist critiques of the inequities embedded in mainstream approaches, to alternative approaches from feminist political economists and ecologists and indigenous and racial justice activists, the symposium will explore the fundamental transformations urgently needed to forestall climate catastrophe.


Issues of climate justice and the need to transform the dominant global economic model are increasingly on the table, as people across the world mobilize against a simple return to the status quo.
