In her keynote speech, Barbara Muraca will outline the key strategies for degrowth, specifically reflecting on the following topics, which are also the guiding topics of the third day of the conference:
-Changing networks of production and consumption and driving political action
-Degrowth as a fundamentally social challenge, involving structural changes of social practices, institutions and governance mechanisms and not just ‘fixes’
-Need of new imaginaries and thoroughly different narratives; bringing the old concepts of community, trust, cooperation, solidarity into the new age
-Connections between global or regional transition strategies
-Austerity vs sustainable degrowth
-Commoning, self-organizing, social solidarity and participatory principles of managing resources
