Description of the activity

In the last decades the critics to capitalism has transformed into a wider criticism to the ideology of growth and unlimited development. The obsession of growth has lead to social, economical, ecological and political unsustainability: from hyperconsumerism, to exploitation of ecosystems, from resources conflicts, to political corruption and climate change. Today new movements all over the world are using new languages and new perspectives: degrowth, buen vivir, commons and alternatives to development.
