Ashish Kothari will build the basis for discussions of the fourth day of the conference, which will focus on building alliances for degrowth. In his speech, he will outline his views on the guiding topics for discussion of that day:
-Degrowth and inequality from a global perspective
-Lack of real democracy and equity (political and economic)
-Positive transformations based on radical political and economic democracy; empowerment of voiceless groups of society; global village support to local communities in their struggles
-Resistance to state and corporate power and top-down, elite-based decision-making
-Alternative worldviews emerging from radical alternatives from the global South and North
-Possibilities and prospects of global movements with a common framework of values/ethics
