#4 Thematic stream of the 9th International Degrowth Conference

🚫 There is a message propagated by powerful institutions that once we get the right kind of growth – a ‘healthy growth’ decoupled from capitalism’s sordid environmental record – the world won’t have to worry about growth per se.

🌍 As degrowthers, we know that the carbon-fetishism of green growth is at best a distraction.

❔ How to best operationalise research aimed at deconstructing the dominant capitalist worldview and normalising the counterhegemonic worldviews? ⬇️

📢 We are thrilled to announce our first keynote speaker - Kohei Saito!

✅ Associate professor of philosophy at the University of Tokyo, with a PhD in philosophy from the Humboldt University of Berlin.

✅ His 2017 book "Karl Marx’s Ecosocialism: Capital, Nature and the Unfinished Critique of Political Economy" was awarded the Isaac Deutscher Memorial Prize of 2018.

✅ Saito’s "'Capital' in the Anthropocene" (2020) was a pathbreaking interpretation of Marx’s theory of postcapitalism in the age of climate crisis.

✅ His next book "Marx in the Anthropocene", an argument for degrowth communism, will be published from the Cambridge University Press by the end of 2022.

#3 Thematic stream of the conference

👥 Within capitalism hegemonic ideologies and practices are established through domination which reproduces injustices and inequalities in environmental conditions, socioeconomic circumstances, gender, race and ability.

📰 In capitalist male-dominated narratives inequalities are embedded in values, meanings and symbols of everyday life.

❔ How can degrowth support feminism’s performative and intersectional dimensions? ⬇️

Degrowth is an ecological transition framework that starts from a systems-thinking perspective and combines values of:
🌿 ecology,
👩‍⚖️ justice,
🌍 wellbeing and
🤝 democracy.

➡️ Degrowth has a theoretical grounding in Earth system science, ecological economics, political ecology and post-development.

➡️ A perspective on degrowth from the post-socialist semi-periphery of Croatia, with a turbulent transition to capitalism in hindsight, suggests that capitalist development can lead to dedevelopment, depopulation and environmental degradation — making an alternative pathway into a just and sustainable future not only necessary but also politically desirable.

#1 Thematic stream of the conference

🌍 A conference taking place in the region once priding itself on leading the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and alternative ‘globalisation’ visions provides a platform to ask where visions of a polycentric world are rooted today.

🐌 Revisiting historical and present-day visions of alternatives provides a prism through which to address economic, political, social, and cultural imaginaries that can practically and institutionally challenge the dominant hegemonic order.
