Online Conference | November 26-28, 2021

Care for Global Justice.

In times of covid-19 crisis.

With live cultural program in Leipzig

„Care“, (ge. Sorge, arab. رعاية / عناية , span. Cuidado) means to take care of the necessities of life. Care includes unpaid and paid care work such as cooking, cleaning, washing, caring for elderly and sick people, looking after children and supporting each other. These activities are central to our social life and to a respectful living among humans and nature.

Care work is structurally exploited because economy is geared towards profit maximization benefiting only few people. Especially people performing care work are disadvantaged: mostly women*, in Germany often women* with uncertain residence titles and/or lower incomes.

The Covid-19 pandemic has intensified the care crisis.

Our conference program is committed to global justice. International speakers will provide insights into care work around the world, into feminist approaches for a new economy, and anti-racist struggles in the globalized labour market of care work. In times of Covid-19 crisis, what paths can we take to fight as a global movement for social and environmental justice? Which utopias of a different economy can we develop and are already being lived? What does global learning look like for a society that cares for itself and its environment?
