Masculinities and Climate Change - Potluck Dinner
The climate crisis is a reality that cannot be ignored. In order to prevent disasters, we must transform our societies and our way of life. But patriarchal structures and destructive masculinity norms stand in the way of the transition. In Sweden, for example, men's private transport releases twice as much carbon dioxide as women's. In order to achieve climate goals, we need to understand the links between gender equality and climate, and more men need to change and transition to a sustainable society. How can each and everyone be part of the solution?
We invite you to a potluck dinner about masculinity and climate change. So come as you are and bring some vegetarian food to share (cooked, uncooked, leftover...)
We will listen to Paul M. Pulé from Chalmers Technical University co-author of “Ecological Masculinities” and Vidar Vetterfalk from MÄN who proposes new alternatives outside the traditional masculinity norms. We’ll also get the chance to try MÄNs newly developed prototype for groups focusing on men, masculinities and climate change and share our personal thoughts and reflections.
No previous experience is required. Everyone is welcome!
