Abstract: The contribution will focus on Richard Douthwaite's work in Ireland towards a material degrowth society, especially his work within FEASTA, the Foundation for the Economics of Sustainability and his activities in “seed projects “ coming from civic society or grass roots level that were needed as there was no use waiting for governments or policy makers to get to grips with problems: projects for the localisation of economies, and of new monetary systems.

This media entry was a contribution to the special session "Beyond globalization – the legacy of Richard Douthwaite" at the 4th International Degrowth Conference in Leipzig in 2014.
