Panel discussion at the the 4th International Degrowth Conference for Ecological Sustainability and Social Equity in Leipzig in 2014.
Speakers: Tadzio Müller, Nnimmo Bassey, Lucia Ortiz
Facilitation: Lyda Fernanda

From the conference programme: The question of global justice is frequently underplayed or even omitted in the debate about the relationship between the climate crisis and economic growth. Development model and growth formula are presented as solutions, while causing further problems. Yet, movements in the Global South put forward proposals which can find linkages with the degrowth movement. In this panel, the economics of the climate crisis and models to repay the climate and emissions debt are discussed from a climate justice perspective.
