Yesterday was the opening of the 5th International Degrowth Conference in Budapest, for the first time taking place in an Eastern European country with lots of local participants.
Questioning the limits to growth
Degrowth has emerged over the last 10 years. This provocative slogan has been used to inspire in-depth debates on whether infinite growth in a finite world is desirable or even possible. The main goal of the Budapest Degrowth conference and week is on one hand to question the limits to growth in understanding the challenges faced by society and on the other hand to implement dialogue about solutions on different levels.
