Sustainable Development and much more!
Lots of information about the pattern of resource use, that aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for generations to come. Whether it be in cities, in corporations, in your home, globally... But there is much more than this! I am a very positive hearted person, and I do see a future, an enjoyable and liveable future a head of us. This subject is my passion, but I am also doing a Grad degree in this: Environmental studies and International Development.

Degrowth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Degrowth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Sustainable Development and much more! | Scoop.it

Degrowth is a political, economic, and social movement based on environmentalist, anti-consumerist and anti-capitalist ideas. Degrowth thinkers and activists advocate for the downscaling of production and consumption—the contraction of economies—as overconsumption lies at the root of long term environmental issues and social inequalities.

 

Key to the concept of degrowth is that reducing consumption does not require individual martyring and a decrease in well-being. Rather, 'degrowthists' aim to maximize happiness and well-being through non-consumptive means—sharing work, consuming less, while devoting more time to art, music, family, culture and community.
