Growth, Degrowth and Climate Justice

February 23 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Global Justice Now conference

“with Jason Hickel, author of The Divide: a brief guide to global inequality and its solutions

And Ann Pettifor, prizewinning economist and author of The Production of Money

Economic growth is a shibboleth of modern politics, but is it compatible with climate justice? Do rich countries need to ‘degrow’, and if so, what would that actually look like? Join us to discuss what the politics of degrowth might mean for organising to stop climate breakdown.

Workshops (these will run simultaneously):

  • Degrowth and the global south
  • What are the biggest barriers to a post-growth prosperity?
  • Post-growth alternatives: Co-ops, the commons and the solidarity economy”

All welcome. Free.

NB: Starts in church and moves to Kennington Park Community Centre for part of programme.
