A degrowth agenda for the Netherlands (panel)
Thursday 8 December – 20:00 – 21:15 CET
This concluding panel discussion will sketch the profile and stepstones for a degrowth agenda in the Netherlands. What does degrowth mean for a country with such a large economy and dramatic ecological overshoot? What are the sectors that must degrowth? What added value would a degrowth agenda have for the wellbeing of the people in the Netherlands and beyond? Which political strategies, social movements or coalitions are necessary to reach that agenda?
