Some 430 researchers, professors, students, activists, professionals, artisans, cooperative members and representatives of social movements from 38 countries met in Mexico City, as registered attendees at the Conference, to discuss the latest conceptual and empirical contributions of the movements that object to unlimited growth (degrowth-descrecimiento), usually understood as a response to the breakdown of contemporary society.

Structured mainly by thematic presentations in parallel sessions and plenary discussions, the Conference was held between 3 and 7 September at the Palacio de Medicina (Former School of Medicine) of the UNAM-Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico, the first four days and at the Teatro del Pueblo, the last day.
