Yayo Herrero in conversation with Jenny Giraldo

Medellín 2023, 

Anthropologist, engineer, professor and activist Yayo Herrero (Spain) is one of the key voices of ecofeminism, a current of critical thought and activism that unites the positions of feminism and environmentalism to rethink humanity's relationship with the natural world. Herrero is the co-author of around twelve books, in which she reflects on the ecological challenges and problems we face as a society in order to conserve the natural bases that sustain life on the planet. The author will talk with Jenny Giraldo about how we can build our bond with the planet from an ecofeminist point of view, and will propose alternative forms of economic, political and social reorganisation that will allow us to recover the broken bonds between nature and people.
