Dutch Social Movements and Degrowth
What’s it all about?
This Key Conversation (conference stream) has two key aims:
- To build relations between initiatives and networks aligned with degrowth practice and principles and
- to generate momentum for degrowth thinking in The Netherlands.
We invite existing initiatives and networks that potentially share and pursue degrowth principles in their work in different spheres, including food, energy, mobility, housing, and money.
These potential alliances will be invited to (1) discuss how they adopt/pursue these principles, and (2) explore shared experiences of the challenges of a degrowth transition.
We believe that a myriad of existing initiatives in the Netherlands could benefit from further encounters and linkages within a wider critical and constructive Degrowth movement!
To realise our ambitions, we will collaborate with the Dutch Degrowth platform Ontgroei and map potentially allied initiatives and organisations, organise a pre-conference event, facilitate the building of relations and alliances during the conference, and build an enduring community of practice.
