    Untold Stories of the Circular Economy

    Untold Stories of the Circular Economy

    On this episode of Establish, our host Mars Moreira speaks with sustainable business expert Tamara Shulman on all things circular economy. The circular economy, as Tamara explains, prioritizes reusability and regeneration of products at the end of their life. Instead of throwing a ripped t-shirt in the trash, a circular economy approach would find ways to reuse all the scraps in the fabric. Tamara also describes that instances of circular economy are actually more common than we may think. Tune in and hear a great conversation between Mars and Tamara to hear all about this system fits into the climate activism space.

    Composting Complexity: Stamina for Decolonization

    In this episode of Establish, we will bring you Latinx voices to talk about their experience migrating to Canada, realizing the nature of a country built as an extractive project and struggling with what we know as “modernity” as we strive for climate action. How can we bring a critical view on our dissatisfaction with current systems in a way that can use existing privileges to help create something new? What are some perspectives for a future different from ‘modernity’? Today Azul will join us to talk about the Gesturing Towards Decolonial Futures collective, understand how to compost our “shit” and sit with complexity as we navigate these questions.

    Ever wondered what the term Just Transition really means? Look no further!
    This episode is an overview of the research done for the Just Transition ALC module, providing an overview of what Just Transition is, a brief history, key principles and how to take action! This podcast episode is by no means extensive but allows for an introduction to this topic and the resources explored on the virtual ALC module.
    As part of our Righting History initiative the Active Learning Club (ALC) was created to ensure that all members of our community are consistently engaged in current events, and are active learners of historic systems of oppression so that we’re all able to dismantle such systems in the pursuit of justice. Integrated alongside topics of social justice, we’ll also be featuring a range of issues related to climate change, environmental degradation, and politics. 🤍
    This episode aligns with our Just Transition virtual ALC module that you can view on the Righting History website (https://www.rightinghistory.ca/).
