    Fecha: Miércoles, Enero 27, 2021 - 12:00 UTC
    Duración: 120 min
    Breve descripción:

    The COVID-19 pandemic continuously urges us to examine questions of global inequality and injustice, and revive experiences countering Eurocentric modernization and hegemony. Activist intellectuals, especially from the Global South, will exchange and debate the following four themes:
    (1) Vaccines as a Global Public Good;
    (2) Modern Sciences, Colonialism, and Capitalism;
    (3) Traditional Medicines as Alternative;
    (4) Indigenous Civilizations and Practices.
    When the long traditions of diverse civilizations and cultures gain genuine recognition and respect, we can together survive.
