Local in Global: Prosperity without Growth?

23.12.2016  |  Call for applications

How can there be a good life for all within the ecological limits of our planet? That is the guiding question of the international training "Local in Global: Prosperity without Growth?", which will take place in Krzyżowa from February 21st to 28th.

The predominant economic model of our time is based on unlimited growth and the exploitation of natural resources. But how can there be infinite growth on a finite planet? Manifold crises, including climate change, increasing social disparities across the globe, large migration movements, an instable financial system and a loss of confidence in political institutions, indicate that the capitalist system is failing. Together we will critically reflect upon the growth paradigm and explore paths to a post-growth society that is more democratic, solidary and sustainable. In doing so, we will bring together perspectives from Armenia, Bulgaria, Germany, Moldova, Poland and Ukraine
