What conditions made neoliberalism break through and how can we break with the imperatives of neoliberalism are just two of the questions that will be discussed at this discussion event with Gabriele Michalitsch and Linn Stalsberg.


Are we willing to change our consumption and behaviour? Does it have anything to do with society, the system – the neoliberal one – we live under? How it affects us as individuals?

Linn Stalsberg and Gabriele Michalitsch will elaborate on this and open a debate on causes and how we can change the neoliberal subject and thus the world.

This hybrid event will be held in English – with a summary in Danish.


Transform!Danmark, in cooperation with the transform! europe network, Global Solidarity, Solidarity, Critical Review, Enhedslisten’s Women’s Committee and others.
