Degrowth and the Caring Economy

Cities and regionsEuropean Translocal SolidarityCaring & DegrowthKnowledge CommonsDigital ecosystems

The pursuit of endless economic growth is harmful, for the planet and for our health. Activists, policy makers and scholars all over the world are exploring alternatives to growth-centric politics, towards a vision of ‘degrowth’.

Together, we are rethinking and redesigning society beyond the hegemony of growth. We not only propose the redistributive downscaling of the biophysical size of the global economy, but also envision a new, feminist-inspired paradigm in the form of a caring economy: a socio-ecological transformation centered around the key values of care, autonomy and sufficiency.
