"The Ecological Limits of Work in the Age of Automation”
With Philipp Frey, Director, Center for Emancipatory Technology Studies (ZET)
Join us for a discussion on the ecological limits of work in an age of extreme productivity. What are the prospects of reduction of working time to improve not only workers' well-being, social equality and reduce unemployment - but also help overcoming the dramatic climate crisis facing humanity. We will reflect on whether the time has come for a ‘Free-Day for Future’, giving ourselves as well as the planet time to rest and recover.

“Living Wild: Why Keeping Wild Places and Animals Healthy is Key to our Own Health”
With Dr. Radhika Borde, Department of Social Geography and Regional Development, Charles University, Prague
In this talk we will explore the question - What we as individuals could do to prevent future pandemics? Due to enhanced human mobilities, no part of the world is biologically isolated from any other part, different species are similarly interconnected. The spread of disease amongst one species has an impact on another. Therefor the health of the planet must be approached holistically. Perhaps this pandemic should force us to change our notions of being 'outside nature', and instead start taking the health of wild places as seriously as our own.

“The Transformative Cities People´s Choice Award and the Atlas of Utopias”
With Sol Trumbo Vila, Transnational Institute (TNI)
By focusing our attention on cities we can find multiple economic and political practices that contribute to a global transformation towards a post-capitalist future. In this talk we will discuss the Transformative Cities People´s Choice Award and the Atlas of Utopias, a process-tool to give greater visibility and resources to local practices that preconfigure post-capitalism, thus facilitating its spread and prosperity.
