Ecofeminist thinker & doer
Ecofeminist, activist, anthropologist, professor and engineer
“The ecofeminist perspective allows us to recognise the opposition and conflict between life and capital and can help reshape our political and economic logic.”
Yayo Herrero is one of Europe’s most influential voices in ecofeminism and political ecology. Author of over 30 books, she teaches at several Spanish universities and contributes to a variety of media outlets.
From lecture halls and street marches to directive boards (she led the ecosocial education foundation FUHEM and the Complutense University of Madrid Foundation’s Centre of Environmental Studies and Information), Yayo spent decades radically rethinking our political, economic, and social discourses to put life at the centre of our future. She’s now part of grassroots confederation Ecologistas en Acción and cooperative Garúa.
Yayo Herrero will join us live as a remote guest and will interact with the festival audience.
