ConferenceKaaitheater, Brussel
Can care be a new starting point, based on connectedness and generosity? Can care, as an emancipatory principle, underpin politics and economics?

Care has never been as central as it is with the corona crisis. But care goes far beyond the medical: it includes everything we do to preserve and restore the world. The erosion of the welfare state, the plundering of the Global South and the crossing of planetary boundaries is worrying. And what about the link between the exploitation of man and nature?

So what if tomorrow we have the courage to really care for all people and other earthlings, for our unique living world? In which we leave behind the instrumental view of nature as a resource to be plundered, and man as a competitor?  Can care be a new starting point, based on connectedness and generosity? Can care, as an emancipatory principle, underpin politics and economics?
