Open Call for Hosting the Fourth International Conference on Degrowth for Ecological Sustainability and Social Equity
There is now a significant momentum, academic and social, around the idea of degrowth. Given this, R&D wishes to facilitate, plan, and organize the Fourth International Conference (foreseen for 2014). This is an open call for expressions of interest from parties who wish to organize the next conference. If interested please present your project. Deadline for submission: February 1st.
One of the core activities of R&D is the facilitation of networking and the flow of ideas between various actors working on degrowth, especially in academia. For this reason, as well as in order to increase the visibility of the degrowth ideas and proposals in the public space, R&D has organized the 1st and 2nd International academic Conferences on Degrowth for Ecological Sustainability and Social Equity and called for the 3rd International academic Conference on Degrowth for Ecological Sustainability and Social Equity, which led to the International Conference in Venice and the Conference of the Americas in Montreal. Apart from demonstrating latest research in the field, the conferences aim at promoting cooperative research and work in the formulation and development of research and political proposals.
Past conferences: Paris 2008, Barcelona 2010, Montreal 2012, Venezia 2012 .
