Exploring Degrowth: A Critical Guide
Vincent Liegey and Anitra Nelson
Spokesperson for the degrowth movement Vincent Liegey (Budapest, Hungary) and degrowth advocate Anitra Nelson (University of Melbourne, Australia) talk on the politics, challenges, strategies and visions of the burgeoning degrowth movement, starting in France to spread worldwide. Chaired by Pluto’s FireWorks Series editor, Gargi Bhattacharyya.
As a sense of urgency pervades global environmentalism and the Left, the degrowth movement burst into the mainstream. In short, as growth driven climate catastrophe looms, degrowth is a political response based on changing how we live. Exploring Degrowth: A Critical Guide counters obsessions with growth to demand a slowing of our economies, reorientation around provision of basic needs for all, supported by political autonomy and cultures of living within Earth’s limits.
As the authors discuss the practices and strategies of the movement, identifying its strengths and weaknesses, they examine ‘frugal abundance’, horizontal democracy, ‘open relocalisation’, conviviality and reduced paid work to argue why degrowth is a compelling and realistic project.
