International Conference on Degrowth in the Americas

International Conference on Degrowth in the Americas | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Drawing from previous degrowth conferences in Paris and Barcelona in 2008 and 2010 respectively, the Montreal conference will focus on the particular situations and dynamics of the Americas. What does degrowth mean for our Hemisphere with its rich geographical, cultural, social and economic diversity? How can degrowth models apply to different contexts from the Arctic to Tierra del Fuego? What does degrowth mean for the indigenous peoples of the Americas and their aspirations for their lands and peoples? How can degrowth concepts be made audible, understandable and acceptable to rich North Americans?

 

This conference held in Canada from 13-19 May will probably be much more relevant for the future than the upcoming Rio+20 summit.

Where Economic and Environmental Prosperity Meet

Where Economic and Environmental Prosperity Meet | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
Overdeveloped countries, including the United States, need to adopt a strategy of economic "degrowth" to limit ecological collapse and severe climate shifts. This does not mean stagnating economic development; it means cutting down on waste and overcoming the social pressure to accumulate material wealth at the expense of others' well-being.
