Sunday 4 November 2018, 6pm   Debate on ecological unsustainability and economic growth,

Speakers: Prof Molly Scott-Cato MEP (UK Green Party), Prof Giorgos Kallis (Barcelona), Prof Kevin Anderson (Manchester) and Prof Robert Pollin (Massachusetts). The event will be chaired by Maeve Cohen (Rethinking Economics).
organised by University of Manchester, Political Economy Research Centre.

What does the ecological crisis mean for capitalism? And what does capitalism mean for the ecological crisis? What kind of economic transformation is required to get us back within safe ecological and planetary boundaries? Does that imply economic growth, green growth or degrowth? What should we be pushing our political representatives and leaders to do? The University of Manchester hosts a debate on these questions and the political viability of a ‘post-growth’ economy.

University Place, Lecture Theatre B. Oxford Rd.

Recent events.

Malmö International Degrowth conference.  September, 2018.

the conference was a warm and vibrant space for those working in many ways on alternative economic and social approaches to come together and share ideas, practices and experiences. Far more than an academic conference, this was both a cultural event, taking place in Sweden’s oldest public park, the Folkets (or People’s) Park, and an intervention. The immediate context was Sweden’s general election, and the week of events ended with a march and public debate with Swedish politicians: some of whom from the Left and Green parties also joined local activists to participate in discussions at the conference itself.
