What is your motivation and intention with organizing this conference?
The restless expansion of our economies is causing unprecedented crises and threatening our very existence. With this conference we aim to raise awareness about potential solutions for these crises. With our overall theme, Caring Communities for Radical Change, we highlight that care – through solidarity and justice – is central to degrowth as a collective project promoting sustainable, decolonial, feminist and post-capitalist modes of flourishing. The conference will be an invitation to build bridges between social movements, art, research and other practices, bringing together a range of different perspectives and actors. Together, we can create the system change that is needed in order to ensure a good life for all.
