Resisting environmental and social injustice through commoning

Dr Gustavo García-López

Social and environmental injustice are increasing globally as neoliberalism tightens its grip. Crisis upon crisis are hitting especially vulnerable populations, interacting to create precarious and untenable living conditions. These issues become more pressing in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has made more visible to the world the environmentally destructive and socially unjust patterns of our societies. 

In this interview with BlISS, current Prince Claus Chair holder at the International Institute of Social Studies, Dr Gustavo García-López, argues that what is needed is more equitable and sustainable ways of life based on communality and interconnectedness in order to address the complex global crisis caused by globalized neoliberal capitalism.

Dr García-López spoke with Lize Swartz about his work and how commoning can transform the world we live in.
