Paths of Sustainability, Ethical Consumption and Participation. Towards a New Model of Citizenship

This event will focus on forms of political participation that are related to consumerism and production.

Picture description

This event will focus on forms of political participation that are related to consumerism and production. From boycotting to ‘buycotting’, from new forms of rurality to zero kilometer producer-consumer networks, these new forms of political engagement are spreading on a massive scale and represent new ways through which every day economic practices are being questioned and challenged by a growing number of ‘critical’ citizens, families, local communities and entrepreneurs.

On March 9th, the docu-movie ‘The True Cost’ (2015) will tell us a story about the clothes we wear, the people who make them and the human and environmental impact of the ‘fast clothing’ industry.

Start at 3:30PMwith a roundtable, movie screening 5:00PM – 16:30PM
