A three-day retreat/seminar with authors of a book project on gender and sustainable livelihoods coordinated by Wendy Harcourt, editor of the journal Development (
and newly appointed professor of Social Policy at the Institute of Social Scince, Hague) and Josie Stremmelaar, Hivos. The meeting was held at the incredible scholar-activist-art collective Convento S. Maria del Giglio
in Bolsena, Italy – a stunningly beautiful, old monastery overlooking a crater lake.
Niclas Hällström, What Next Forum participated as discussant to comment and reflect on the book chapters, linking this work to the What Next Feminist Political Ecology process that was initiated by Wendy Harcourt and the What Next project some years ago.
Look out for the new book which will be published by Palgrave, just in time for the Rio +20 summit in June next year!
