Together we say no to the alleged lack of alternatives. We want to show concrete scope for action and alternatives to the capitalist growth society, because a good life for all is possible!
Organize a picnic and talk about a “good life for all” – change often starts with a relaxed chat around good food.
Of course, other forms are possible: be it a public debate with degrowth activists, a bicycle tour to a local CSA farm (Community Supported Agriculture), a visit to the next Repair Café, a lecture, a flashmob, an information booth, a small festival, a demonstration in front of a coal power plant… you can decide! But we recommend to have during, before or after the event, a convivial part, where people can interact and share food/drinks together.
For a care focus, you may for example reflect in a discussion group on how care is at the center of our lives, organize a demonstration for better care working conditions, or show how you care for your environment and health of your communities with gardening, neighborhood networks, mutual aid groups.
Create your event and share it on the map
To organize your own global degrowth day event follow the instructions on events.
You can also fill out the participation form so we can create your event for you. Please note that this may take a little time, also for any changes you may have later.
Your event will appear on the map.
Don’t forget to document your event! Here you can place your pictures and documentation. We will publish them after the action day.
For social media, use #GlobalDegrowthDay or #GDD2021.
Since the situation regarding corona virus can be different in every country we recommend to inform yourself whether public real life events are an option in your area. We definitely don’t want you to risk your health and those of other people. But this does not mean that we cannot have a great global degrowth day!
