Degrowth project funding


The degrowth-conference took place in Leipzig in September 2014. Fortunately, the collected voluntary participation fee was higher than expected. This enables the conference team to allocate 9.000 Euro for project funding.

Deadline for applications is the 1st of September 2015. > Here you can find more information.
