This degrowth web portal is an information portal around degrowth, but it doesn’t provide much space for interaction except the comments. Therefore, we recommend two interactive platforms as well as two mailing lists.

Interactive platforms

The two interactive platforms we recommend to you are Netzwerk Wachstumswende and co-munity. You can access both platforms directly from this website but you have to register there in order to be able to participate in the discussions. On both platforms, you can join groups and projects, read and contribute to the blog, learn about new events and much more.

The Netzwerk Wachstumswende wants to bring people together who want to work collaboratively on solutions for a society beyond the growth paradigm. It was initiated in 2010 by young members of the German association for ecological economics (Vereinigung für Ökologische Ökonomie) and is now hosted by the Förderverein Wachstumswende. With the network, we share the calender of events.

Co-munity was developed as part of GROWL (“growing less, learning more”), an international degrowth project. It is hosted and run by ecobytes.
