Activist Session: Degrowth in the context of advocacy in the EU
Friends of the Earth
Degrowth has the potential of constructing a unifying narrative to approach the interconnected economic, ecological, and social crises Europe is facing. But so far the debate on degrowth has been mostly confined to the academic and grassroots level without a real engagement with NGOs and EU institutions. In the course of 2017/2018 Friends of the Earth Europe developed a campaign on sufficiency and degrowth to overcome the ‘silo mentality’ that still prevails in the formulation of policies by institutions and in the advocacy work of NGOs. This workshop is aimed at sharing with participants the opportunities and difficulties encountered by Friends of the Earth Europe both in bringing the framework of degrowth in the coordination of its campaigns and in its advocacy work towards EU institutions.
