Environmental Issues Discussion: Ecofeminism 

Join us for a discussion and workshop on the topic of Ecofeminism. Dr. Ronni Joy Leah, with the University of Calgary's Department of Women and Gender studies, will lead us in a discussion that answers some of the following questions:
  • What is ecofeminism?
  • How does ecofeminism connect to environmental problems and sustainable solutions?
  • What is "the Work that Reconnects?" How do we bridge the gap between nature and culture?
  • Ecofeminism in action - what are some examples of ecofeminism at work, here in Alberta?
This will be an interactive workshop, and participants will be given the opportunity to connect with others, and make connections between work for social equality and work for environmental justice.
