‘Practical steps to living within planetary boundaries’
at RISC, 35 – 39 London Street, RG1 4PS
We left our last meeting inspired by Jason Hickle’s talk on ‘degrowth’ but wanting to know more about how it can be achieved. So we are continuing that theme at this meeting.
Jason defined degrowth as ‘A planned and democratic reduction of less necessary forms of production in rich countries to bring economies back into balance with the living world in a safe, just and equitable way.’
At this meeting we will have a few short talks to start us think about ways we could ‘degrow’ our economy and about countries or groups that are already managing well with less. Then we will break into groups to continue the discussion.
In order to prepare for the meeting you may like to read Jason Hickle’s book ‘Less is More’ or watch the video that we watched at our last meeting, ‘How to Save the Planet: Degrowth vs Green Growth?’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxJrBR0lg6s
