8th International Degrowth Conference
Caring Communities for Radical Change
24 – 28 August 2021
The restless expansion of our economies is causing unprecedented crises and threatening our very existence. How do we confront the contradictions between endless economic growth and the ecological boundaries of our planet? What kind of society would ensure a good life for all, without wealth and power being hoarded by the few? How can we enable a just transition that halts over-extraction, over-production and over-consumption?
With our overall theme, Caring Communities for Radical Change, we highlight that care – through solidarity and justice – is central to degrowth as a collective project promoting sustainable, decolonial, feminist and post-capitalist modes of flourishing.
If you are interested in participating in any aspect of this project – be it from an activist, artistic, academic, practitioner or another perspective – we warmly invite you to visit our website to find out how you can get involved: degrowth.nl
