Standard session (discussion following 4 presentations)

  1. Materialising degrowth in local urban planning policies - video
    This paper focuses on the intersection between degrowth and urban planning, and contributes to a deeper understanding and a sharper concretisation of how a strong sustainability concept such as degrowth can be taken into planning practice for long term sustainability.
    Presenters: Carlos Ruiz-Alejos, Vincent Prats

  2. Exploring Equitable Degrowth in Circular Community Development in Health and Care - video
    Underserved and historically marginalized populations have been disproportionately afflicted by financial and climate related disasters. In face of the immediate climate crisis, many existing systems are being disrupted, thus adversely impacting the livelihood, health and wellbeing of underserved populations. In planning for better community health outcomes, we examine a new paradigm of coupling of healthcare with local green economic development. Modeling after ecovillage development and circular economy principles, we explore the potential of deploying circular communities, where residents produce what they consume to achieve resilience through self-sufficiency.
    Presenters: Larissa Lai (University College London)

  3. Future’s Strategists: How Sustainability unfortunately did not intervene at Stuttgart Stöckach
    The presentation will showcase subsolar*s failed competition entry „Zukunfts Strateginnen“ for a transforming neighbourhood in Stuttgart as a case example and starting point to discuss obstacles, but also potentials and possible strategies to successfully “degrow” existing cities.
    Presenters: Saskia Hebert (subsolar* architektur & stadtforschung, Berlin)

  4. Collaborative housing in Catalonia: obstacles and strategies - video
    Collaborative housing (cooperative and co housing) allows for efficient use of resources, solidarity and non-speculative urbanism. This degrowth model is expanding in Catalonia, through partnerships between government and civil society, but concrete implementation faces a series of obstacles.
