• Covideconomics for an Economy of Life and Climate Justice
    Activity Image
    Activity Date: Friday, January 29, 2021 - 14:00 UTC
    Duration: 120 min
    Brief Description:

    The COVID-19 pandemic has produced an unprecedented human and economic catastrophe. Those in the socio-economic margins (the income-poor, women, people of colour) have been disproportionately affected, both in regard to contracting the disease and losing their livelihoods. The response of governments and their impacts have been uneven. Rich countries have announced an astounding US$11 trillion in support while many 'developing' countries are falling deeper into debt. Even as the pandemic has exposed the brokenness of the prevailing economic paradigm, it has slowed down climate change- causing emissions and offers an opportunity to radically rethink economic policies and systems with a view to building a more healthy, equitable, democratic, and sustainable planet. The online discussion will share experiences of communities, explore socio-economic, political and ecological dimensions, as well as lift up local and global proposals for an Economy of Life in a time of pandemic.
