Dividing roles along flows instead of functions

New role division within degrowth Practice

Degrowth has been questioning the level of role division. But we need to question also the way roles are divided. We argue that roles need to be divided along flows instead of functions. Flows include plants, recuperated materials, natural elements and living beings including humans. “Thinking like a flow” has been experienced in Can Decreix, a house of degrowth at the French/Spanish border, in the last 12 years. We argue that we need to step out of typical role divisions to explore new ways of living and organising for a degrowth transformation that take well care of ethics. New role division and degrowth can be experienced with role plays, and immersions in degrowth practices.
