Solidarity Economies: EcoCiv interviews David Cobb

Published

on

 

On this episode, Austin Roberts speaks with political activist, David Cobb. David has been involved in progressive and radical politics in the U.S. for many years. He was the Green Party presidential candidate for the 2004 election, and in 2016, he served as the campaign manager for fellow Green Jill Stein during her presidential run. More recently, David has dedicated much of his time and energy to the non-profit organization, Cooperation Humboldt, which works to build a more democratic and sustainable economy in Humboldt County, California. Austin talks with David about his experiences in U.S. politics, the notion of “solidarity economies” as an alternative to capitalism, worker owned co-operatives, Green New Deals, and how he holds on to what he calls “a contradictory sense of outrage and optimism” at the same moment in the midst of escalating planetary crises. [**EXPLICIT CONTENT**]

lauren Ornelas: Food Empowerment Project

Ebony Bailey speaks with lauren Ornelas.  Lauren is the Founder and President of Food Empowerment Project (F.E.P.), a vegan food justice nonprofit that promotes veganism, fights for workers, and works on lack of access to healthy foods in Black and Brown communities and low-income areas. She has been an animal activist for three decades, during which she has launched numerous groups, investigated factory farms, run consumer campaigns, and helped stop the construction of an industrial dairy in California. Among other topics, Ebony talks with lauren about why she says that “food is power,” whether vegan products are really “cruelty free,” how exploitative food practices disproportionately impact communities of color, F.E.P’s work with farm worker rights, and about their efforts to promote healthy food access to low income communities.

The Capitalocene, World-Ecology, and Planetary Justice

Published

on

EcoCiv’s podcast manager, Austin Roberts speaks with Jason W. Moore. Jason is an environmental historian and historical geographer at Binghamton University, and the author of 2015’s Capitalism In the Web of Life: Ecology and the Accumulation of Capital. He also edited the 2016 book, Anthropocene or Capitalocene?, and with Raj Patel, he co-authored the 2017 book, A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things. Throughout this conversation, Austin and Jason explore many of the major themes and ideas that Jason has developed across his published writings. They begin by discussing Jason’s major critique of capitalism as a world-ecology, which he argues depends on a practice of “cheapening nature.” They also talk about Jason’s recent critique of mainstream environmentalism, modernity’s violent split between Civilization and Savagery, putting relational philosophies to work, the Anthropocene/Capitalocene debate, the collapse of capitalist civilization, and what gives him hope.

The Most Important Lessons from COVID-19: A Conversation on Global Systems Change

Published

on

As world leaders struggle to address the coronavirus pandemic, one thing has become certain: this is more than a health crisis. From Covid’s impact on economic systems, ecological systems, and systems of production and consumption, to its effects on systems of governance, to its exacerbation of injustices experienced by the poor and vulnerable ― it’s clear that the global challenges we face are all interconnected. On this episode of the EcoCiv podcast, Andrew Schwartz moderates a virtual panel with experts from around the world for a probing conversation on today’s global crisis and why a systems approach to civilizational change is fundamental for a healthy future. The five panel participants include environmental activist Vandana Shiva, economists Elliot Harris and Gunna Jung, author Jeremy Lent, and co-president of the Club of Rome, Mamphela Ramphele.
