Edinburgh degrowth picnic – Thursday 23rd May, 6pm

“Whether you’re new to the idea of degrowth, or have been following degrowth debates for a while, we hope that you’ll enjoy some tasty picnic foods, delve into interesting topics and leave with a better understanding of degrowth, and maybe some thoughts about building the degrowth movement in edinburgh.
Meet on middle meadow lane, directly opposite Söderberg Cafe. If the weather is playing along we’ll head to the meadows.
If the weather is not playing along, we’ll move to an indoor venue instead.
Please share this invitation freely. Email e.j.hurst@stir.ac.uk with any questions.”
