15 MAY | Covid-19: moving towards a Commons future

CEI researcher, Ana Margarida Esteves, is a guest speaker in the third session of the Webinar “Dialogue on Alternatives in the Time of Global Crises“, organised by the Global Tapestry of Alternatives.

Dialogue 3: Covid-19 – moving towards a Commons future will take place on 15 May, at 13:30 (UTC/GMT) (i.e. 14:30 Lisbon time).

About the initiative

This series aims to facilitate sessions with activists, scholars, researchers, mobilisers, practitioners across the world who have engaged on exploring systemic alternatives to the dominant regimes, contesting its roots in capitalist, patriarchal, racist, statist, and anthropocentric forces. The conversations aim to collectively explore with a range of initiatives a possibility of a just, life-centred and respectful transition into the future. Importantly to explore not only what can be done, but also the tough question of how, and by whom? And where possible, to make the discussion relevant to the current crisis.

About the session

Third in a series exploring the opportunities of promoting and creating systemic alternatives, this dialogue explores the responses emerging the Commons Movement, particularly in Europe. How can it provide us the pathways to move towards direct democracy, social equity and ecological resilience?
