Degrowth Vienna 2020

Strategies for Social-Ecological Transformation

“Degrowth Vienna 2020 – Strategies for social-ecological transformation” is a four-day conference taking place in Vienna (campus of University of Vienna “Altes AKH”, Spitalgasse 2) from May 29th until June 1st 2020. The conference will consider the role of strategy for a degrowth transformation and give room for exchanging, reflecting and developing strategies with scholars, practitioners, artists and activists. It will complement the International Degrowth Conference in Manchester in September 2020. 


By bringing together practitioners, artists, activists, civil society actors and scientists, we want to integrate different kinds of existing expertise and elaborate promising approaches to transforming the economy in a socially just and ecologically viable way. The conference will have a participatory design, including a thorough documentation process that will generate concrete outcomes for the degrowth movement and research society.
