The sixth axis of work of the VI World Social Forum Science and Democracy focuses on the relationship between science, society and environment in the context of the current ecological and social crisis. The proposal is based on a twofold question. First, is the capitalism of today’s neoliberal globalization ecologically sustainable? Secondly, what alternatives, based on the ‘common good’, can confront the current ecological and social catastrophe and guide us towards other futures that guarantee human rights on a globally sustainable planet? We have invited scientists, social movement activists and university professors to think about these questions. Our axis will be divided into two sections, the first focused on the diagnosis of the ecological and social crisis; the second focused on the answers, on the reflection and debate on the different scientific, social, political and human rights alternatives aimed at transforming the current relationship between capitalism and ecology in a socially emancipatory sense.
