UrbanA Community Conversation: Feminist perspective for sustainable just cities
UrbanA Community Conversations are a series of regular (nearly biweekly) online events that bring together people with a passion for urban sustainability and justice to connect, learn, discuss and have fun.
Sara Ortiz Escalante will open the Community Conversation speaking about the relevance of gender perspectives to create sustainable and just cities. Sara works at Col·lectiu Punt 6 (Collective Point 6) a cooperative engaged on feminist urbanism to “make our cities more inclusive and make the people who inhabit them the experts of the spaces that surround us.”
They will address the following questions:
- How have cities reorganised work and what have been the gender consequences of the Covid-19 crisis in the distribution of care?
- How have cities supported care of dependents in the Covid-19 crisis?
- How have cities responded to the diversity of needs, households and people?
- What can cities change to place care and people’s life at the center in the new scenario post-Covid?
