Tomorrow (Friday, 29th) starts the 4-day online global Degrowth Conference. Take some time and listen to the talks! Tonight, you have the last chance to register: https://www.degrowthvienna2020.org/en/participant-registration/
As my current employer hosts a workshop for the conference as well, I have been quite busy these past days and you are getting a shorter blog post to read. You can inform yourself about degrowth by reading my past post, if you haven’t done so yet: https://cathagoessustainable.wordpress.com/2020/05/07/spotlight-on-degrowth/
There is a great new network called Netzwerk Oekonomischer Wandel (Network Economic Change), or short: NOW. Representatives of degrowth/post-growth, common good economy, commons, solidarity economy and others have come together to work jointly on an alternative to the current economic paradigms (https://www.netzwerk-oekonomischer-wandel.org/ueber-now/).
Have a look at their position paper and tell me what you think about the approach: https://www.netzwerk-oekonomischer-wandel.org/ 🙂
I think that it’s great that sustainability- and equality-oriented groups work together to increase their leverage to transform society. They still have some way to go (e.g. translate their page to English), but I am looking forward to what they are up to. They are also happy for others to join them, so have a look!
For today, I will leave you with this input. Have a nice Pentecost/Whitsun/long weekend in the respective areas or a nice normal weekend in the others 🙂
