New Video: An Introduction to Rethinking Growth

Submitted by robertgnewell on 29 May 2012

A new video has been released on the CRC HEADTalks Channel featuring quotes and concepts used to stimulate conversation at our workshop held on March 30th, entitled De-growth: A Critical Juncture?. The workshop brought together academics and practitioners from a variety of different locations and disciplines to explore alternative models to the our current system of constant economic growth. The objectives of the workshop were to create frameworks for policy and action, which address the finiteness of the world and our impending approach to global capacity.

Outcomes of the workshop were used for a Policy Agenda Paper (pending release) and a presentation delivered at the International Conference of Degrowth in the Americas.  We will disseminate ideas and outcomes from our exploration in 'rethinking growth' over the next couple of months through a video series, the video above being the first of the series.
