Abstract in another language

The Thunberg Effect is a boundary breaking bridge builder in an overheated early 21st century world. School strikes have opened the global public sphere for even kindergarten-going citizens’ environmental concerns to be publicly voiced. Listening to such micro complaints within a larger socio-economic context implies self-critical rethinking about what is globally desirable in the light of childhood i.e. through the perspective of Childism. This workshop, followed by a panel discussion, aims to sensitize adult audiences to start opening up to the philosophical complexities of children and childhood that beckon care in an overheated era.
