Curious Community will host the social sustainability coordinator Melike Kıratlı in this months event. The talk will cover how sustainable the trendy word ‘sustainable’ really is. Melike studied sociology and cultural studies, and she is currently pursuing her doctorate in communication studies. Nowadays, writing her dissertation on the criticism of the concept of sustainability, she will be joining us to share her ideas on how the system is using the domain of sustainability to create new domains of consumption. Her focus will be on how ‘sustainability’ is used by the powerful to take advantage of the powerless. How sustainable is ‘sustainability’ anyway, join us and let’s find out.
