Towards an urban degrowth: Habitability, finity and polycentric autonomism

By: Federico Savini

Abstract: Over the last decade, degrowth has offered a concrete alternative to eco-modernization, projecting a society emancipated from the environmentally destructive imperative of competition and consumption. Urban development is the motor of economic growth; cities are therefore prime sites of intervention for degrowth activists. Nevertheless, the planning processes that drive urban develop...

Degrowth Vienna 2020 - Via radical social reforms towards a counter-hegemony?

By: Barbara Sennholz-Weinhard, Ellen Ehmke, Frank Adler, Jana Flemming, Ulrich Schachtschneider
