18-19 September 2018, in the European Parliament, Belgium : A major degrowth & post-growth conference convened by European-level stakeholders

A major degrowth & post-growth conference convened by European-level stakeholders (Members of the European Parliament from different political groups, academics, NGOs and unions) will take place in the premises of the European Parliament on September 18 and 19 (2018). At the heart of the European Union decision-making, the 2018 conference will offer a unique opportunity for the EU civil society and the degrowth and post-growth communities to exchange their views with those of EU officials and staff who define the core of the European economy. The aim of these 2 days – about one year before the next European elections and the nomination of a new Commission – will be to support a wide cultural contagion effect within the EU-institutions by which the thinking of policy makers could tilt towards genuine sustainability.
