Climate change, a consequence of the extraction of the earth's natural resources and dispossession of the planet's and humanity's common goods, traces a complex dilemma between deepening the global trend of accumulation and dispossession or changing the paradigm, not only of production, consumption and exchange at the global level, but also of who, how and for what purpose is produced and consumed locally and globally, overcoming patriarchal and colonial biases.
PSI has commissioned a study that focuses on the state of care arrangements in different countries around the world that will contribute to the discussion on how an agenda for transformation could be advanced. An agenda that will rebuild the social organisation of care, based on the principles of social co-responsibility, equality, and decent work.
