From Friday 26 to Monday 29 March 2010 the Second International Degrowth Conference took place at the historic building of ‘Universidad de Barcelona’. 500 scientists, civil society members and practionners from more than 40 countries attended the conference.
More than 300 participants took part in working groups for degrowth political proposals and research. Stirring papers are available online in each working group section.
On the Sunday morning, I presented a paper at the Managing degrowth: Employment, Security and the Economy under a Degrowth trajectory session. The slides from this talk : TRANSCENDING THE DEPICTION OF MARKET AND NON-MARKET LABOUR PRACTICES, EXPLORING COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND THE IMPLICATIONS FOR DE-GROWTH and those given by other key speakers can be found here.
