MORE INFORMATION FROM THE SPEAKERS
we want to fundamentally shift how citizens think and feel about the tiny labor(s) of care in our everyday lives, the parallels between the oppression of nature and the oppression of women (eco-feminism), and the tensions of our human/nature relationship. Ideally, we hope to radicalize everyone by offering them new lenses through which to see and cultivate the lived experience, not as separate or above nature, but as deeply entangled with/in nature.
Swinging between the macro and micro perspectives, participants will leave with more theory and knowledge, but mostly we hope individuals feel empowered to take tiny steps to save the planet and ourselves (and our children). More specific sample topics include: Visible Mending, food justice, regenerative agriculture, slow living, and healthy soil.
