One Earth Director Vanessa Timmer is speaking at the De-Growth Conference in Vancouver on the 1st of May. The De-growth conference builds on similar conferences that have been held in Paris and Barcelona, and examine what a viable economic, social and ecological system will look like. ”The evidence is overwhelming that unlimited industrial growth is no longer possible. Our challenge now is to find ways to shrink the overall size of the economy without creating unemployment and poverty.” Vanessa’s presentation focuses on applying our knowledge of social change to inform the de-growth movement, and on sharing One Earth’s projects and United Nations activities.
