Degrowth Conference Vienna 2020: “Strategies for social-ecological transformation” (May 29th until June 1st 2020).
Deadline: December 15th, 2019
Contemporary societies face unprecedented ecological, social and economic crises that call for an immediate and radical transformation of the dominant, growth-dependent mode of production and living. Degrowth, as a social movement and a burgeoning academic field of research, has focused on conceptual discussions, concrete utopias and case studies for a social-ecological transformation. What is missing, however, is an in-depth discussion on the strategies to achieve such a transformation.
The conference will have a participatory design, including a thorough documentation process to generate tangible outcomes for the degrowth movement and research community. The conference consists of two main parts, firstly understanding past and future transformations and the role of strategies and secondly, strategies in practice.
