Degrowth and Strategy

International Book Launch.

Our friends in Degrowth Vienna have recently released a new book titled ‘Degrowth and Strategy‘. The book which has been extremely well received by the wider movement, advances the debate on strategy for social-ecological transformation.

Bringing together voices from degrowth and related movements, ‘Degrowth and Strategy’ explores and identifies key directions for the degrowth movement, and scrutinises strategies in practice that aim to realise a degrowth society. To mark the release of the book, of which a free pdf copy can be accessed here, a two-part webinar has been co-organised with Degrowth Talks.

The first webinar on October 27th  will focus on strategising for degrowth with and within diversity. The second webinar on November 2nd will explore how and to what extent degrowth practices challenge corporate power.

The webinars will be an opportunity to “Celebrate the book’s publication with our international editors, contributors and readers”. Panel discussions will be followed by Q&As.

Part I: October 27th, 20:00-21:30 CET (online)

Economy and livelihoods after Covid-19: Save the date, 1-4 Sept. 2020

Economy and livelihoods after Covid-19

A global on-line symposium of the International Degrowth Network and the International Society for Ecological Economics.

September 1 to September 4th, 2020, University of Manchester.

The sessions will be in the afternoons BST.

Join us for this symposium over four days. We’ll be considering the implications of the global Covid-19 pandemic for economy and livelihoods. The Covid-19 pandemic and responses to it have had deeply  unequal impacts on lives, livelihoods and well-being across race, gender and class.  At the same time it has opened up the space for new possibilities for building alternative livelihoods and economies that can take us beyond a capitalist economy that requires ever expanding growth.  Will we go back to business as usual with all the ecological, social and economic risks that will bring or take the path towards a new kind of economy that provides for human needs of all while restoring and protecting the natural world that we all depend on?
