Activist Session: Making Degrowth News
"We are in the process of publishing the first ever printed German-language Degrowth newspaper. Going beyond online blogs and their common focus on individual lifestyle choices, we want to give a voice to Degrowth positions that focus on global social and environmental justice. The newspaper will comment current affairs, serve as a forum for active Degrowth practitioners and discuss their projects.
In this session, we want to focus on print media. We would like to discuss how Degrowth can be communicated in face of the persistent growth paradigm: Is it possible to create a counterbalance to growth-oriented mainstream media? In how far can a printed newspaper be a suitable means to achieve this? How does our normative approach get along with journalist neutrality? How to finance, publish and distribute in a way that is compatible with Degrowth? Which existing knowledge can we share? Who wants to join us?"
