Äitini on alien in Yle Areena (in Finnish)

How to approach motherhood in the era of climate change? The reproduction of the human species seems contradictory when life on Earth is at stake due to human activity. The radio essay reflects on the theme of motherhood in relation to the Alien films and takes us towards an unknown terrain, where only multispecies cooperation can enable life to continue on a damaged planet.
