Event description
The (Im)possibility of Green Growth and its Alternatives

About this event

How can we decarbonize our economy?

Proponents of Postgrowth and Degrowth approaches argue that it will not be possible to decouple economic growth from ecological impacts. Contrary to the logic of Green Growth, they call for abandoning the political fixation on GDP growth and propose alternative economic models for a sustainable future economy. In this second event, we give the floor to leading experts from Postgrowth and Degrowth economics, to present different concepts from this vibrant scholarly field. Prof. Susan Paulson, Centre for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida, will be in discussion with Prof. Tim Jackson, Director of the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity, University of Leeds and Dr. Katherine Trebeck, Co-founder and Senior Strategic Advisor at the Wellbeing Economy Alliance. Christiane Heisse, PhD candidate at SOAS, University of London and scholar of the Foundation of German Business will moderate the event.

This event is part of a series on economic growth and climate change, organized by the student-led d\carb - Future Economy Forum and hosted by the Centre for Sustainability at the Hertie School.
