Degrowth-Conference 2018 in Malmö (Sweden)
The 6th International Degrowth Conference in Malmö, Sweden, titled “Dialogues in turbulent times” has taken place from August 21-25. It was organized by the Institute for degrowth studies (Institutet för nerväxtstudier),
This conference aimed at expanding the geographical and thematic scope of degrowth discussions, as well as building dialogues with critical social theories, sciences and social movements. Malmö was a perfect city to host such a conference. Vibrant and mixed, but also relaxed and down-to-earth, it has a strong presence of alternative forms of organising and a varied cultural and grassroots life. This conference had the power to further consolidate these and acted as a platform for mutually enriching dialogues among groups from around the globe striving for a better world.
