Talk with author Madeleine Bunting

Catalyst  / Thurs 16 March / 5:15 - 6:15 PM

In her recent non fiction book, Labours of Love, the Crisis of Care, prize winning author Madeleine Bunting argues that care is an essential part of being human. Receiving and giving care is a constant throughout the life course, yet our education system does nothing to promote and encourage the necessary skills and attributes: if schools are expected to inculcate a work ethic in their pupils, what would the equivalent care ethic look like? And how might this contribute to the  reimagining of care so urgently needed in human relationship and in our attitudes towards the environment.



Madeleine Bunting is an English writer, a prize-winning author of many works of non-fiction, and formerly an editor and columnist at The Guardian newspaper. She is also a regular broadcaster for the BBC. As a columnist she covered a wide range of subjects from religion & faith, to politics, social change and global development, has won several One World media awards for her work on global inequality and development.
