Bringing degrowth into management education?

A launch event for the MEND (Management Educators Navigating Degrowth) network

How is degrowth being brought into management education? This session will build on conversations which have been ongoing since 2021, when a group of early career academics began a dialogue about degrowth in management education. Out of a series of intensive 2-hour online group discussions (‘learning sets’) we formed the MEND (Management Educators Navigating Degrowth) collective. MEND is a forum for discussing practices and pedagogical approaches for bringing degrowth and post-growth into management education.

In the session, we will introduce MEND and our work to date, then facilitate a ‘learning set’-style discussion with attendees. The learning set will provide space to share experiences and practices of teaching degrowth in (potentially) hostile settings. We will conclude by outlining our plans for bringing more people into a wider MEND network that will continue to hold regular dialogues and spur further pedagogical development going forward.
