Degrowth day 2019
Degrowth Day is a global event that takes place every year on the 1st of June. Its purpose is to gather people and share alternatives to a growth based society. Everyone is encouraged to participate in local activities or organize these activities themselves!
This year, we decided to go from Utrecht to Amsterdam to the Food Autonomy Festival. If the weather is good, we plan cycling there starting at 10.00 am. Otherwise, we will take public transport. Join us and stay tuned for updates!
The 1st Utrecht Degrowth Symposium aims to introduce the paradigm of degrowth to the Dutch academia and civil society, through a half-day event of lectures, panel discussions, and informal interactions. The event focuses on two overarching questions: What is degrowth? What does degrowth mean in practice? It will take place on the 28th of June at Utrecht University Uithof campus. A detailed program of the event, as well as registration form, are available here.
Degrowth conference 2021
In the Summer of 2021, the Hague will host the 8th International Conference on Degrowth for Ecological Sustainability and Social Equity. The conference will gather researchers, activists, artists, and practitioners who will debate on a variety of topics. The general focus will be on healthy communities – politically, ecologically and psychologically. There will be presentations and open workshops, but also story-telling, poetry, and music. It will take place over five days at and around the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), an organization with a long-standing tradition in social justice and critical development studies.
