Social Innovations for Economic Degrowth

Social Innovations for Economic Degrowth | UCOS - Klimaatverandering | Scoop.it

"... a growing community of scientists and social activists, sharing the basic insight that a reduction of energy and material use implies a reduction of gross domestic product (GDP), is gathering under the heading of sustainable degrowth.3 Degrowth obviously entails a fundamental transformation of economic structures. But what precisely are the necessary steps?"

 

Very good article in Solutions Journal on the need to scale up social innovations for sustainable degrowth if we want to move from the failing growth paradigm to a new paradigm of the good life.

August 22 is Earth Overshoot Day

August 22 is Earth Overshoot Day | UCOS - Klimaatverandering | Scoop.it

Today, August 22, is Earth Overshoot Day, marking the date when humanity has exhausted nature’s budget for the year. We are now operating in overdraft. For the rest of the year, we will maintain our ecological deficit by drawing down local resource stocks and accumulating carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
