An invited talk at Hashhouse Hub in Medellin, Colombia.

Covid-19 has revealed the importance of looking at care infrastructures as a common good for collective wellbeing, living together and caring for each other. The presentation focuses on the South American concept of ‘Buen Vivir’ (‘good living’), which relates to ideas of ‘wellbeing’ and the ‘commons’, and builds on ancestral knowledges such as ‘Sumak Kawsay’ and traditional local practices in Colombia.The key question of the presentation is: how can care provide solutions for collective wellbeing in times of crisis? From this perspective, collective wellbeing is holistic and inclusive of all, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality, as well as nature and other species.
