Inviting to the OIKOTREE Virtual Meeting – WSF 2021

            Title: Covideconomics for an Economy of Life and Climate Justice

Brief description: The COVID-19 global pandemic has produced an unprecedented human and economic crisis. Those in the socio-economic margins (the income-poor, women, people of colour) have been disproportionately affected, both in regard to contracting the disease and losing their livelihoods. The response of governments, and their impacts, have been uneven. Rich countries have announced an astounding 11 trillion in support while many ‘developing’ countries are falling deeper into debt. Even as the pandemic has exposed the brokenness of the prevailing economic paradigm, it  at the same time offers an opportunity to radically rethink economic policies and systems and to build a more healthy, equitable, democratic and sustainable planet. The online discussion will share experiences of communities as well as local and global proposals for an Economy of Life in a time of pandemic.
