Yayo Herrero will share some ways to create a more aware and healthy relationship with nature and the environment, in conversation with María del Rosario Osorio, Deacon of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Science at the University of Cartagena. Herrero is a major figure in ecofeminism, an expert in environmental education and sustainable development and the co-author of around a dozen books on the ecological challenges we face. In her work as an activist, she was the State Coordinator of Ecologistas en Acción and General Manager of the ecosocial organization FUHEM.
The arduous shift towards caring for our environment, creating a dignified quality of life and reconstructing the communities that make this possible is always linked to the territory. What we need to know is about experiences of work in the territory, models of community practice connected with the land that can serve as examples for other places. For this purpose, we bring together the Spanish ecofeminist Yayo Herrero, the Cartagena activist Nilda Meléndez and the Ukrainian writer and activist Victoria Amelina, who will talk to Marta Ruiz.

The figure of Santiago Beruete (Spain) is one who combines the philosopher, the educator and the gardener. Since 2006 he has been studying the subtle connections between theories of utopia and gardening styles, analysing how these spaces have, since antiquity, constituted a visible metaphor for the good life, a sensitive representation of happiness and a valuable document of the dreams of social perfection that arise in each period. At this event, the author presents his series of essays Jardinosofía: Una historia filosófica de los jardines; Verdolatría: La naturaleza nos enseña a ser humanos; Aprendívoros: El cultivo de la curiosidad; and Un trozo de tierra. These writings invite us to conserve the environment, offering an intimate look at what sustains us: nature and all those bits of earth that make us what we are. In conversation with Laura Quintana Porras.
