Summary/Abstract: Today’s humanitarian and environmental crises have revealed how important the mind/nature opposition can be. Dualisms male/female, mind/body, public/private, production/reproduction, which are the cornerstones of male culture, legitimize the underestimation and domination of nature. Opposing these dualisms, which render the sustainability action thought as an optimistic way out for ecological problems unsustainable, revealed the struggle for ecofeminism. Generally, ecofeminism advocates a combination of all systems of oppression that marginalize communities in terms of class, gender and race throughout the definition of rights and responsibilities, access to ecological information and decision-making processes. Within this framework, the objective of this study is to focus on how gender affects ecological processes while underlining that the social sustainability is at least as important as building technologies in space production. Here, the domestic space is the basic research sample and gender refers to the processes where identities are produced rather than gender roles. The study recommends the idea of collective living which enables the reconstruction of gender identities by publicizing the care-related part of domestic labor. To this end, a qualitative analysis was made of four examples of collective living projects that meet the preconditions of sustainability-equal participation. These samples, which carefully consider the concepts of labor and care, aim to enable ecological reform as well as social, economic and political reform.
