Yayo Herrero in conversation with Juan Cárdenas

Towards an ecofeminist world

Cartagena 2023, 
“To put what is necessary to sustain life at the centre.” This is how Yayo Herrero (Spain) defines the goal of ecofeminism, a current of thought and activism that involves a critical analysis of the beliefs that underpin the ecocidal, patriarchal, capitalist and colonial model, and proposes alternative views for extinguishing the fires of this war against life. At this event, Herrero will talk about the past, present and future of ecofeminism, and will talk about her latest book, Los cinco elementos: Una cartilla de alfabetización ecológica. This work of non-fiction analyses the current ecosocial crisis through five elements, with the aim of recovering the memory of what we are and where we come from, and developing an awareness so that we can take responsibility for the world as a viable project. An invitation to activism and, at the same time, a passionate hymn to living well on our planet. In conversation with Juan Cárdenas.
