Plenary Session: Plenary: Dialogues between critical social theories, science and degrowth
Stefania Barca, Andreas Malm, Ruth Kinna, Nicholas A. Ashford
Degrowth brings together inseparable issues of social justice, ecological sustainability and human flourishing. An open and living research area, it is informed by natural sciences, as well as critical schools of thought. Natural sciences keep building scientific evidence of severe environmental consequences of the growth-centric mode of living. Critical social theories scrutinise contemporary issues in theoretically nuanced ways and have historically inspired people across the globe to mobilise in struggles for justice. This plenary aims to bring critical social theories and natural sciences in dialogue with Degrowth and each other, and explore how alliances for a socio-ecological transformation can be built.
