Organizing for degrowth
Sharing experiences and learnings from Research&Degrowth
Research and Degrowth is a non-profit association based in Barcelona dedicated to research, training and outreach on degrowth and environmental justice since 2010. We are based in three Catalan Universities: Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona, Universidad de Barcelona and Universidad Pompeu Fabra. We participate in several grassroots movements and projects in the city of Barcelona. We dream of societies becoming slower by design, not disaster, putting human and planetary health first.
In 2020, we took the decision to turn our association into a formal think and act- tank, to push for degrowth ideas and conversations in the public realm. We want to act as a hub for hosting and energizing all those people around the world (politicians, businesspeople, activists, intellectuals) willing to question and think beyond a one-way future consisting only of growth.
This interactive discussion panel has two objectives. Firstly, we wish to share more insights about this journey which can act as learning for people wishing to set up their own local degrowth collectives. Secondly, we wish to share our visions for the future, and find ways to collaborate and engage with the participants of the conference in multiple ways.
