Online Summer School on Transforming Societes
We live in a world stricken with several interlocking social, economic, and ecological crises. While the current covid crisis has devastated the lives and livelihoods of many people around the world, climate change remains one of the biggest challenges of our times. Based on the premise that out of crises can emerge opportunities for social transformation, this interdisciplinary course presented by an international team of academics, activists, and practitioners offers critical, invigorating, and innovative insights on how we can build an alternative world where a good life is possible for everyone. Some of the topics covered include critical education and media, Indigenous wisdom, racial and gender relations, and the building of peaceful, nonviolent, socially just, healthy and ecologically wise societies. To open different perspectives on the world, the course will be dialogical and interactive, structured to stimulate the sharing of ideas, knowledge, stories, projects, and future plans.
