Transforming economies together!
COVIDECONOMICS TOWARD AN ECONOMY OF LIFE
Activity Date: Monday, June 29, 2020 -, 3-4:30 PM CEST
The COVID-19 pandemic is aggravating socioeconomic inequalities, causing unprecedented joblessness, and pushing many countries into debt and economic crises. The pandemic is accelerating in Latin America and some parts of Asia and Africa where health and welfare systems are precarious. In the global North governments have responded with massive economic stimulus packages that will have long-lasting impacts. At the same time, the pandemic provides an opportune moment to rethink and radically reshape economic structures so that they prioritise, guarantee and invest in the health and wellbeing of communities and the planet. The round-table discussion on "COVIDeconomics toward an Economy of Life" will reflect on: (1) the ethical and moral implications of the health and economic emergency; and (2) the short- and long-term socioeconomic transformations that are needed to alleviate suffering, ensure a just and sustainable recovery, as well as address the roots of the crisis.
