Can feminist approaches support the way we care and stand up for the planet and its inhabitants? Through workshops, panel discussions and creative responses, we will explore ways in which feminism is re-shaping environmentalism, in its approaches, reach and hopes. Gather ideas and tools that you could use to make a positive difference.

Disruption is Fertile, Saturday 28th September, 1pm to 5pm, £2/Free

Does climate chaos call for radical action – and, if so, on whose behalf? How does the environmental movement reflect gender, class and racial dynamics? Join campaigners, creatives and curious souls to explore some of the key questions at the heart of ecofeminism and find inspiration and tools for different routes into the growing global climate movement.

Facilitated by writer and activist Mairi McFadyen, the afternoon promises to pack a lot in, including an opening provocation by journalist, artist and activist Layla-Roxane Hill and participatory workshops with Glasgow Women’s Library’s Museum Curator Jenny Noble, Global Justice Now Scotland, and poet Nalini Paul.

This free event is one of many on offer as part of this year’s Take One Action Film Festival, which takes place in Glasgow and Edinburgh from the 18th to the 29th of September. Discover some of the films in Take One Action’s Sisters and Shared Planet strands, which shine a light on women’s empowerment and provide inspiration and vision for a sustainable future.
