Climate change and the need to move towards renewable forms of energy have long been at the forefront of both global and national agendas. Dominant discourses on climate change focus on two areas: reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to the effects of climate change.
From May 26 to 27 the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) in partnership with The Society, Work and Development Institute (SWOP) and Stellenbosch University will be hosting a feminist table workshop on climate change and the food-water-energy nexus. The aim of the Feminist Table workshop is to explore different aspects of the climate crisis from a feminist perspective. It involves ‘dialogic learning’ in the sense of creating a shared and safe space in which women can share their experiences, deepen their understanding and develop their collective strength.
