Celebrate degrowth on June 4th 2022 - this year’s Global Degrowth Day!


We call on everyone inspired by degrowth to organize (online) actions and events invoking the theme of Climate Justice.


As usual, on Global Degrowth Day you are invited to explore the different ways out of growth-dependency, and to connect to inspiring (local) initiatives working on new paradigms relating to sustainability and justice. This year we suggest to add the focus on Climate Justice (page work in progress).


What to do on the Global Degrowth Day?

On our website (https://degrowth.info/en/gdd-good-life-for-all) you can find a collection of ideas and helpful hints. Given the pandemic situation it will also be possible to hold events online. We had a diversity (www.degrowth.info/en/2020/06/degrowth-around-the-world-celebrating-the-2020-global-degrowth-day) of events all around the world in the last years (walks, picnics, webinars, bicycle tours, demonstrations...).


In order to build alliances and cross-contaminations we strongly encourage degrowth groups to organize their event together with other local movements and associations that are fighting for climate justice (e.g. Fridays For Future, Extinction Rebellion, Transition Town, Green Peace, etc..)!


At the international level we are working together with Degrowth Talks on a webinar where degrowth speakers will discuss together with Fridays for Future, Extinction Rebellion and Global South climate movements. More info will be available soon here.



To organize an action or event, follow the instructions on https://www.degrowth.info/en/gdd-good-life-for-all#register and register your event in the map. For social media, use #GlobalDegrowthDay2022 and visit our facebook page Global Degrowth Day. Here you can find a flyer that you can finalize with the details of your event.


Who are we?

We are part of the “Activism” working group of the international degrowth movement.You can reach us here: globalday@degrowth.net

After the excitement of an intense three-days Beyond Growth Conference 2023 (BGC), attended by 7,000 participants (on-site and online), the time is ripe to distil critical reflections.


Shift Slow is thrilled to announce that tickets are open for Alt - Shift: a Degrowth Festival 2nd Edition!


Alt+Shift is a combination of keys that allows us to open up a window of possibilities from the few keys that we are given in our keyboard. We need new tools and a new narrative, that must be altogether altering, alternative and altruistic.

By: The Global Degrowth Day Team

In this announcement, the Global Degrowth Day organising team talk through the selection of care as the theme for the 2021 edition of the event. In our search for a theme for next year’s Global Degrowth Day, taking place on June 5th 2021, we launched a call for ideas back in October, and a poll in November.
