Economies after Anthropocene Capitalism

Flower in Drought

Community Economies scholars Bhavya Chitranshi and Stephen Healy recently participated in a day-long event at the University of Sydney entitled 'Economies after Anthropocene Capitalism'.

A major focus of the event was a dialogue focused on economic transformation and the role that multi-species justice might play in generating a response to the Anthropocene. 

Bhavya Chitranshi presented on her sustained engagement with Eka Nari Sanghathan (or Single Women’s Collective) in India and how their farming practices allow them to be attuned to the possibilities of farming differently. 

Stephen Healy's presentation focused on commoning approaches to thermal comfort in urban environments and the role of more-than-human life and inter-generational dialogue in planning comfortable and convivial spaces.
