    Bioeconomy & Inequalities

    Presentation (online, in German): „China is turning the economic engines back on“ by Fabricio Rodríguez

    The daily life practices of societies in Europe and North America have for centuries been based on long-distance extraction in other parts of the world. As China rises economically, Western lifestyles are adopted, adapted, and reproduced by hundreds of millions of people. More than a fifth of all Brazilian exports now go to the „Middle Country“. The analysis of the trade relations between Brazil and China shows how Western lifestyles and the corresponding modernization paradigm travel and affect the socio-ecological conditions of Brazil – and the globe.

    Title: China is turning the economic engines back on – an ecological nightmare for Brazil; and the world?
    Date: Thursday 30.04. – 20:30-21:30
