Book "The case for Degrowth"

As a thank you for your support we will send you a fresh paperback copy of the latest book about Degrowth:

"In this compelling book, leading experts Giorgos Kallis, Susan Paulson, Giacomo D’Alisa and Federico Demaria make the case for degrowth - living well with less, by living differently, prioritizing wellbeing, equity and sustainability. Drawing on emerging initiatives and enduring traditions around the world, they advance a radical degrowth vision and outline policies to shape work and care, income and investment that avoid exploitative and unsustainable practices. Degrowth, they argue, can be achieved through transformative strategies that allow societies to slow down by design, not disaster. "

Global shipping included!

Practical degrowth weekend at Can Decreix for one person

We offer a long weekend (Friday-Sunday) of convivial degrowth immersion at Can Decreix, one of R&D's "Living Labs" of Degrowth. Close to the sea in Cerbère (France) just behind the Spanish border, Francois Schneider, his family, friends, and visitors practice and experiment with low- and medium technology like solar ovens, rocket stoves, a pedal washing machine; cultivate wild plants and cactus, and take care of donkeys and goats.
Together with other people, you will be able to collectively explore this practical idea of Degrowth, an inspiring and mind-changing experience.

Organic vegetarian or vegan food included.

The weekend will take place either from 29.4.- 1.5.2023 or from 27.5 - 29.5.2023.

Get more insights in this entertaining video or on their website.
