This fall, S4F and Ontgroei are co-organizing a series of webinars on the topic of degrowth.
Degrowth speaks to the primary contradictions of our time: ecological overshoot, social shortfall, capital accumulation. But how does it approach policy-making? This episode explores the current state of degrowth policy proposals and how their key features fit the context of public policy design and transition strategies. Check out the open access paper here.
