Friends of the Earth Malta is partnering up with V’cenza Cirefice, a PhD Researcher at NUI Galway, and Young Progressive Beings for the online webinar Eco-feminism is the key!
How is feminism and environmental justice related? This workshop explores ecofeminist theory and activism, highlighting the links between feminism and environmentalism. We’ll explore together why we need a feminist response to the climate crisis and learn about ecofeminist examples from around the world. We will delve into local struggles to understand why activism is important in the local context and gain insight and tools to what we can do to in our community.
V’cenza Cirefice, PhD Researcher at NUI Galway
V’cenza Cirefice is an ecofeminist researcher and activist from Mourne, who explores environmental justice through a feminist lens. She has previously worked with Young Friends of the Earth Europe, Plan International, The Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network, Alymras (an NGO working with communities opposing mining in Cyprus), and autonomous refugee projects in Greece. Currently, she is doing a PhD in NUI Galway on extractivism in Ireland through a feminist political ecology perspective.
Young Progressive Beings (YPB)
YPB is a feminist group that was formed following a pro-choice publicity stunt back in June 2019. The larger scope of YPB is to offer young people an alternative political channel to the established partisan ones. YPB was founded with the understanding that political participation is not only an indispensable facet to civil life and the democratic process, but an invaluable means of connecting people for the greater good; demanding excellence from the government, and ensuring that the government serves us, and not the other way around.
