“No Ordinary Conference”: The Fourth Degrowth Conference in Leipzig

The following notes [from Peak Oil] are intended to give some personal insights into what was a very special event, the [fifth] in a series, (Paris 2008, Barcelona 2010, [Montreal 2012] , Venice 2012) and, while it followed the process of previous degrowth conferences, it was by far the most adventurous to be attempted to date.

The event was marked by a diversity of individuals, groups and organisations, which helped to create an atmosphere of real creativity, development and movement. Approximately 3000 delegates attended and one of the most striking aspects was the ease of interaction of the participants with each other.
