all online these days … here’s a webcast where participants can ask
questions while in progress, or watch the playback afterwards.

A Post-Pandemic Economy that Values Makers & Caregivers | Scheduled for May 13, 2020 on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lhmXoz_7AE
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, Sophie Sanniti and Katharine Zywert lead a discussion with host Andy Revkin
exploring how revaluation of the care economy (teachers, parents,
healthcare workers), coupled with a movement towards open-source and
free knowledge, can create more resilient production chains and enhance
long-term wellbeing — for both people and the planet. (Images in the Youtube flyer include Michel Bauwens, Bill Sutherland and Susan Paulson. This is one in a series from http://j.mp/sustainwhatlive (that links to https://www.earth.columbia.edu/videos/channel/sustain-what ).
