We were honoured to have three great thinkers and activists: Victoria-Grieve Williams, Sara Motta and Ashish Kohari with us on 27 Aug 2021 presenting their alternative visions on quality of life under the broader title of “Pluriversal Visions of Quality of Life“. The recording thanks to our partner organization NENA is now available on Youtube. We will appreciate it if you please kindly share this among your networks.

The titles of the presentations are as follows:

  • Adjunct Professor Victoria-Grieve Williams – “Everywhen: Autonomy, Altruism and Living Well”
  • A/Prof. Sara Motta – “Democracy (M)otherwise: Enfleshments from the Margins of Modernity
  • Prof . Ashish Kothari – “Ecoswaraj: a Radical Ecological Democracy Towards Justice and Sustainability”

Chaired by Dr Chris Krogh (a member of Alternative Futures Research Network and the head of Human Services studies at the University of Newcastle).
