A Post-Pandemic Economy that Values Makers & Caregivers

May 13, 2020
DESCRIPTION: The COVID-19 pandemic has not only disrupted production chains and health-care systems but also most directly threatens the wellbeing of the largely-invisible work force sustaining society.

In this special Sustain What takeover, ecological economics scholars Katie Kish, Katharine Zywert and Sophie Sanniti lead a discussion with host Andy Revkin exploring how revaluation of the care economy (teachers, parents, healthcare workers), coupled with a movement toward open-source and free knowledge, can create more resilient production chains and enhance long-term wellbeing - for both people and the planet.

Hosted by Columbia University’s Earth Institute Initiative on Communication & Sustainability for the Economics for the Anthropocene working group at McGill University, York University and University of Vermont
