Degrowth and social movement(s) |

From Degrowth Germany

What common proposals, but also which contradictions, oppositions and tensions exist between the degrowth movement and other social movements? What alliances could be possible? In 32 essays, representatives of different social movements, currents or initiatives discuss these and other questions.

The texts are published together with images, as well as audio and video recordings. The German texts are published in several groups between June 21 and the Degrowth Conference in Budapest in the beginning of September. So far only a couple of texts are planned to be published in English. You will find them here at the End of August. Some material is now available under the Introduction link at the link below.

  1. thanks Bob sounds worthwhile pursuing. take cae – janet

    p.s I am working on transtion towns now- Rob Hopkins, the founder of TTs mentioned Degrowth in one of his many online presentations but only in passing but do think it is a good match for Degrowth- and may try to follow up on it. Transition Towns or Initiatives has grown into a movement with over 1400 around the world all from an initiative in Totnes England as you would likely know.

      I went to a LEAP Manifesto Ottawa group meeting last night. Another potential “community” that might be interested. Their 15 point outline of what’s needed is very similar to the UAB Research & Degrowth’s 10 Proposals for Prosperity Without Growth.
