In March 26 – 29, 2010 the Second International Conference on Economic Degrowth for Ecological Sustainability and Social Equity took place. More than 500 scientists, civil society members and practitioners from more than 40 countries joined the event hosted at the historic building of Universidad de Barcelona.
This website intents to make the materials, proposals and insights produced at the conference available for a wide public debate.
The Barcelona declaration is an important conference result, which is now being disseminated.
A key conference feature was the participatory process through which proposals for degrowth were built, as well as the promotion of strong interaction between scientists and practitioners, including civil society. See:
