Back to short history

Other European countries have active Degrowth movements notably in francophone parts of Belgium and Switzerland. And the movement is spreading. Lately we have been assisting a multiplication of groups and activities all over the world, from Porto Rico to Norway, from Mexico to Canada. For example, more than fifty groups from the whole world organized a Pic-Nic for Degrowth on the 6th of June, 2010. This initiative was launched after the Barcelona Conference with the aim of going from the international to the local level. Participants wanted to bring home the message. It has been successful promoting existing groups around the world and facilitate the formation of new ones. Groups and networks are more likely to emerge from such convivial initiatives than from a smoky room with three illuminated founders.
