Save the Degrowth Summer School!

22.08.2017

Dgsummerschool

For the third year in a row, the Degrowth Summer School is being held on the Climate Camp in the Rhineland. It runs from the 18th to 23rd of August. Just 10 days before the start of the Summer School the foundation „Stiftung Umwelt und Entwicklung Nordrhein-Westfalen“ has cancelled our funding. The reason they‘ve given us: The Summer School takes place too close to actions of civil disobedience in the Rhineland. Now we‘re suddenly missing 46.000 Euros of our budget. To pay for our bills, we want to raise more than 10.000 euros in the next days – or more! That‘s why we‘re asking for your support in this difficult situation. Our account for donations: Reason for payment: „Save the Summer School“ Konzeptwerk Neue Ökonomie e.V. IBAN: DE72 43060967 1137208801 BIC: GENODEM1GLS More information about the Summer School can be found here. Here's the Summer School's video: To find out what will be going on in the Rhineland apart from the Summer School, watch the Climate Camp's video:

Green growth advocates praise resource efficiency for its potential to incentivize the economy and lower its ecological impact. On the other hand, the Jevons Paradox, describes multiple situations (or rebound effects) in which increased efficiency leads to further consumption (either direct or indirect) which offsets the initial ecological benefits achieved. In this piece, I join this discussio...
