The COVID-19 pandemic has not only disrupted production chains and health-care systems but also most directly threatens the well-being of the largely-invisible workforce sustaining our societies.
In this special Sustain What takeover, ecological economics scholars Katie Kish, Ph.D., 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 well-being - for both people and the planet.
9:10: Care Introduction - Sophie Sanniti will introduce insights into the need for a strong care economy to promote a more equitable, sustainable, and healthy society.
9:15: P2P Section Introduction - Katie Kish will introduce how the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the need for open and peer-to-peer knowledge in various sectors such as production, education, and policy to support resilient communities.
9:20: Health Section Introduction - Katharine Zywert will introduce new ideas in the field of health care that accounts for complexity of society while establishing systems that can withstand, and help prevent, the kinds of crisis we are living through today.
9:25: Reactions - give each 'specialist' 10 minutes to respond to comments made by the moderators/discussants. Expert specialists: Care: Susan Paulson; P2P: Michel Bauwens; Health: Bill Sutherland
9: 55: Open Conversation with Moderated Questions for 30 minutes - strictly moderated with questions from the audience and pre-written questions from discussants
Expert Guests: Michel Bauwens, Founder, P2P Foundation Susan Paulson - Professor, University of Florida's Center for Latin American Studies Bill Sutherland - Founder, the Institute for Complexity and Connection Medicine
