Feminist & intersectional takes on the climate crisis

Sat 1 Feb, 2020 : 14:00 - 15:15

In this interactive workshop intersectional feminist researcher Karijn van den Berg is joined by several activists, organisers and thinkers to discuss and strengthen feminist intersectional approaches to our current socio-ecological crises. The workshop will start off with a few perspectives and experiences from those working on intersectional climate justice, setting out the importance of climate action that is sensitive to how people and environments are differentially affected and connects with other issues and movements. In the second half of the workshop we will collectively discuss the importance of these approaches and how they might best be implemented in envisioning and working towards more socio-ecologically just futures. (Other speakers to be confirmed)

Dominique Just

Dominique has been involved with the German climate justice movement for a couple of years, especially with grassroots climate justice groups, but also national climate justice alliances such as Ende Gelände or Sand im Getriebe. At the same time, she has been a queerfeminist activist for a while, and she grew tired of discussing and organising around these two issues separately. In her research and activist work, she therefore strives to tackle climate justice from an intersectional perspective, keeping in mind the many power relations that are reproduced and often reinforced by the climate crisis. Her work is currently focusing on climate and gender just mobility, degrowth and care, and decolonising the German climate justice movement.
