This weekend we celebrated R&D’s 16th anniversary!
16 years ago, in 2006, Research & Degrowth was founded. Since then, R&D has brought scientists, practitioners and activists together, organized events and advanced research on degrowth. Two Masters were established, four living labs founded, eight summer schools organized, 20 degrowth conferences promoted, 12 reading groups started, several academic trainings organized, countless papers and books published, and much more.
All these achievements would not have been possible without all the dedicated voluntary work our members put into it. Now, 16 years later, R&D is taking new steps. We are moving into our first office and hiring a five people office team, to make R&D an even more influential organization that promotes degrowth on an international level.
We are proud to look back and celebrate the collective achievements of the last 16 years that brought us to this point. And we are looking forward to new projects, achievements and challenges to come.
