Learn Methods: „Beyond Growth!“

Discuss and experience methods for educational work on degrowth

Event large

In order to move away from the idea that we can and need to constantly grow economically we need new educational approaches and methods that allow us to critize and question our growth-based economy, explore alternatives and move towards a socio-ecological transformation. We need to disseminate visions of what a „good life“ could mean as well as concrete knowledge of how to re-organise our society through a degrowth approach.

This workshop will be based on the educational set of methods „Beyond Growth - Limits and alternatives to economic growth. Educational material“. We present and practice methods that target participants aged 15 to 25 years. The methods are both participative and creative, and address the basic understandings of our growth based economy as well as our ecological and social boundaries of growth. Concluding, the manifold alternatives will be addressed, discussed and developed further.
