CHASING THE IDYLL NEOCOLONIALISM IN THE DISGUISE OF CHARITY

SOCIAL AND ECOLOGICAL WITH ECOPOLIS

Pursuing social justice and an ecological future: Is that possible? This is the central question posed during Ecopolis' annual meeting. Get ready for a day full of interesting insights, opinions, ideas and, in short, people who will come together in the Kaaitheater to take a closer look at the future of our society.

On 24 October, Oikos vzw, Crosstalks and Kaaitheater will bring different worlds together in a dialogue on sustainability. The academic and artistic worlds, civil society and businesses meet in pursuit of a common goal: a socio-ecological future that respects the limits of the planet. It is one thing to take on the climate challenges, but at Ecopolis you are challenged to place the issue in society and take into account all other aspects of society such as politics, education or economics. How is it possible to create a sustainable future in a world with constant social inequality and increasing polarisation? It is a difficult question, and therefore we need as many voices and as many heads as possible to search for a solution... Your voice can be heard too. What are the conditions to participate? To be passionate! Everyone who feels called is invited to join this conversation.

Crosstalks is in fact an inclusive working group that tries to bring different groups together to tackle a common challenge. And they've created the closing program of the event. The goal is to broaden the issue to a wider audience so that it is on the table everywhere, whether in politics or in schools, but also in courts and in companies. For this we need voices from every group in society, and the VUB community needs to be involved as well. A diverse group makes for a more interesting conversation, and your input can't and shouldn't be missing! For more info, have a look at the website, and see you soon!
