Excellent Conferences in 2010: Second International Conference on Degrowth, Barcelona

ECONOMIC DEGROWTH TODAY

Call for the Second International Conference on Degrowth

Barcelona, Spain, 25-28 March 2010

ICTA (Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona), and Research & Degrowth

This is a preliminary call for a second conference on socially sustainable economic degrowth, linking economic, environmental and social perspectives, with emphasis on practical policies & concrete proposals.

Thirty years ago, Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen published a book in French (edited by Jacques Grinevald and Ivo Rens) with the title “Demain la Décroissance” (Degrowth Tomorrow) (1979). We say, “Aujourd’hui la Décroissance” (Degrowth today). To see the Call for Papers click *here*
