    Brief description (Purpose or mission of your initiative, what it wants to transform, etc.):

    Traditional Medicines and Indigenous Ways – Justice and Sustainability for the Global South
    The COVID-19 pandemic continuously urges us to examine questions of global inequality and injustice, and revive experiences countering Eurocentric modernization and hegemony. Activist intellectuals, especially from the Global South, will exchange and debate the following four themes:
    (1) Vaccines as a Global Public Good;
    (2) Modern Sciences, Colonialism, and Capitalism;
    (3) Traditional Medicines as Alternative;
    (4) Indigenous Civilizations and Practices.

    When the long traditions of diverse civilizations and cultures gain genuine recognition and respect, we can together survive.

    We will organize a special session on the above issues at the 8th South-South Forum on Sustainability (SSFS8), June 18 to 30, 2021. For the details, please visit: https://our-global-u.org/oguorg/en/
