Mobilizing academia for just postgrowth futures    



30. maj 14.00-15.30 - Audi 4 - 23.0.49

Talk and workshop


This session convened by UCPH Degrowth Network and Degrowth CPH explores how academics are helping to bring about major transformations in society, in ways that go beyond the conventional realm of the academe. Research is critical, but so too is the mobilization of power wielded by academia today in the struggle to push power holders in spheres of decision-making. In other words, in pursuit of a just green transition, academics can and must do much more than just research. What opportunities exist in our part of the world for academics to instigate just and democratic pathways that support the wellbeing of all? We’ll collectively explore this question with the audience and several scholars from DK/SE universities also active in social movements aligned with de-/post-growth futures.
