SIGN UP BELOW FOR UPDATES
Given the current uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to make the hard decision to postpone the UK Degrowth Summer School. At the moment it is difficult to predict when it will be possible to hold the Summer School, but we remain dedicated to it and will do our best to make it happen as soon as possible.
Degrowth in Action
Organising for Transformation
WHAT IS DEGROWTH?
Degrowth is a multifaceted concept that escapes single definitions.
One of them defines it as a movement as well as a call for radical social, political and economic transformation, associated with a democratically-led and equitable reduction of resource, material and energy throughput, starting from the overdeveloped West, aimed at improving well-being, ecological sustainability and global justice.
A degrowth economy would be decolonised, democratised, based on care and the commons, and it would translate into an abundance of meaningful convivial time.
Degrowth is a dialectical, pluralistic, subversive and open-ended utopia: a call for an altogether new, qualitatively different world that will evolve through confrontation with the existing one.
Degrowth is not alone. It is just one among many alternatives to development. All these worldviews and practices compose the Pluriverse: “A world where many worlds fit”, as the Zapatistas say.
