The first international women’s day was held in 1912 in the Netherlands. It was a solidarity response with the women accross the world, such as in Russia and America, that had been on strike for better working conditions. Now, 110 years later, there is a even larger movement to develop the feminine ethics and morals of peaceful, harmonic and symbiotic relationships among all people in the world and our natural environment. The theme of 2022 of the United Nations is:
Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow
In Eindhoven women’s day has different initiatives around town. We start on March 5th in the neighborhood of Stratum. A group of about 15 women have organized themselves to do events in and around the local gathering center.
During the week there will be online events organized by our Latin American community C.L.O. The same CL.O. is also taking care of International Women’s Day on March 12th in the Parktheater of town.
Robotlove opens today as a 10 week event that questions our relationship with robots in general and opens up the dialogue on our dependence on technology. Are we being run by robots or are they there to helps us live a better life?
This is a fundamental discussion that also concerns us at City of Tomorrow while we consider our integral human resilience or lack thereof as we use systems to serve and destroy us. In essence our transformative initiatives hook on well with this. For instance the issue of food and our dependence of the economic system to access our primary needs. FRE2SH is our city farm initiative that unites about 30 different companies, production, food innovation, research, food processing, restaurants, etc into one food resilience circular eco-system. It is not a surprise that RobotLove decided to work with us for the catering of 400 volunteers as crew and 90.000 expected visitors.
We prepared salades, wraps, mexican tortillas, sweets and even city brewed special beers for the event. We also registered volunteers through our COS3I social inclusion activities. Sustainocracy is not just a theory, it is put into practice as well. We are one big new world family!
