Degrowth & Strategy Book Release

27. Jul. 2022

How to bring about a social-ecological transformation? The book Degrowth & Strategies investigates possible answers

Degrowth is a counter-hegemonic movement that has the ambitious aim of transforming society towards social and ecological justice. The important yet difficult question is how to get there. That is the question the book Degrowth & Strategy addresses. Adhering to the multiplicity of degrowth whilst also arguing that strategic prioritisation and coordination are key, Degrowth & Strategy advances the debate on strategy for social-ecological transformation. It explores what strategising means, identifies key directions for the degrowth movement, and scrutinises strategies in practice that aim to realise a degrowth society. Bringing together voices from degrowth and related movements, this book creates a polyphony for change going beyond the sum of its parts.The book includes over fifty authors from the degrowth community and beyond. The book is a project of Degrowth Vienna as a follow up to the conference Degrowth Vienna 2020: Strategies for Social-Ecological Transformation. Lisa M. Seebacher from ZSI contributed to both, the conference organisation as well as the book. Their input can be read in Chapter 16: Care.
