Development cooperation in a post-growth era

15.05.2020 12:00 - 16.05.2020 18:00 | Bonn

Ecological and social challenges require “out-of-the-box thinking “
One topic that is increasingly gaining attention is the idea of shifting the development paradigm of the Global North towards a post-growth future, enabling countries to thrive, rather than simply to grow.

Post-Growth Pathways of the Global North
We invite you to engage with us in a thought experiment: What would post-growth pathways in the Global North imply for countries of the Global South and the development cooperation sector?

Participants will

  • Get an introduction to the main concepts of post-growth
  • Hear what scientists from the Global South say about postgrowth concepts
  • Discuss with peers the applicability of post-growth concepts to your own work (i.e. the development cooperation sector)
  • Define insights and concrete actions that you may want to integrate in your work

What? 2-day seminar on the implications of postgrowth economic thinking for the Global South and the development cooperation sector
Who? Development workers / People interested in development cooperation
