Forum for Caring Societies Launch Event
Communities working on ecological justice agree that putting care in the center of economy and society can cultivate a positive vision for change. Researchers, practitioners, and activists all over the world are creating exciting projects and experiments that transcend the current system. The Forum for Caring Societies offers a space for connection, co-learning, and strength through joint action.
The Forum will promote radical eco-social transformation with care as the guiding principle. The collaboration will be grounded in the decades of work undertaken by, among others, eco-feminist, decolonial, and climate justice researchers and activists.
The first steps envisioned for the Forum include: 1) creating a platform for collaboration, policy analysis, and peer learning, 2) convening with funders to support transformation beyond the current system; 3) effectively communicating complex issues related to caring societies. The Forum welcomes researchers, activists, practitioners, funders, and policymakers who are working towards the transformation to fair, sustainable, care-centered societies.
In the lead-up to the launch, read Economies that Day to Care, a report by Hot or Cool and partners on the means to achieve social justice and prevent ecological breakdown by putting care at the heart of our societies.
