MAY 29th - JUNE 1st

Because of the uncertainty around the current global pandemic health crisis, the Degrowth Vienna 2020 conference will not be held in the previously planned format.

After debates of available options we decided to switch the set-up of the event to a digital format.

As it is unclear how long the current situation will go on, postponing the conference to a later date this year seems too risky since we might have to cancel the conference again. This would result in a loss of the hard work of the many people who contribute to the organisation of the conference. Moreover, the topic of degrowth transformations and strategies is still very relevant – maybe even moreso because of the current crisis.

After the COVID-19 crisis is over, we are dedicated to holding an additional real-life event or follow-up, to see each other face-to-face and share and discuss about the experiences of the past months.

All participants that already paid, will get a full refund of the participantion fee (except transaction fees). You will find more information on our website soon.

Degrowth Vienna 2020

Strategies for Social-Ecological Transformation

“Degrowth Vienna 2020 – Strategies for social-ecological transformation” is a online event that will happen in spring 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.
