This year, the fifth International Ecosocialist Encounters gathered activists and organisers in Lisbon to discuss, design and articulate the necessary responses to climate breakdown. This episode was hosted by Julie Gorecki, co-author of the introduction to the first English translation of Feminism or Death: How the Women’s Movement Can Save the Planet by Françoise d’Eaubonne. Julie spoke with Inês Telles, Joana Bregolat, Andreia Galvao, Alice Vale de Gato and Sara Bourehiyi about why we need an ecofeminist approach in our organizing and resistance to extractive capitalism.

Climate Crisis: Time for a New Society is a new podcast where writers and activists discuss radical ideas to move beyond the doom of climate breakdown. A collaboration between the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation Brussels and Verso Books.
