Article publication - Ecofeminist perspectives on the socio-ecological transformation of the Green New Deal

The "European Green Deal" and similar (infrastructure) investment-oriented policies aim to achieve green growth. However, they do not take into account the necessities of social reproduction. This, however, would be a prerequisite for a policy that puts people's needs first. Link to download by clicking on the headline.



Der Lila-Podcast: Prof. Bauhardt guests in podcast

8 hours of work, 8 hours of free time, 8 hours of sleep - for many, this is the ideal for their everyday lives. But it doesn't work out that easily, recreation and free time fall by the wayside, people run after unfinished to-do lists and collapse exhausted at some point. In other words, the capitalist system in which we live and work is anti-human.
From minute 20:30, Prof. Bauhardt discusses the subject.
