With the participants of the VÖW Summer School and VÖW representatives.

Currently, concepts of degrowth, pluralist economics or transdisciplinary research are being promoted but still mostly blocked by traditional departments. In a summer school organised by the Society for Ecological Economy Research and "Netzwerk n" a diverse group of students and young professionals will develop strategies for bringing alternative concepts – especially degrowth – into the university mainstream. Their results will be presented in this session and be added to by international experts and attendees.

Abstract: There is a long tradition of alternative topics and ideas moving from the fringes to the mainstream of teaching and research, both in- and outside the university system. Sustainability was once such a "new" idea that was pushed by student groups and other actors. Currently, concepts of degrowth, pluralist economics or transdisciplinary research are being promoted but still mostly blocked by traditional departments. In a summer school organised by the Society for Ecological Economy Research and "Netzwerk n" a diverse group of students and young professionals will develop strategies for bringing alternative concepts – especially degrowth – into the university mainstream. To this end they will work with representatives of different student groups and with experts that combine many years of experience in promoting sustainability. Their results will be presented in this session and be added to by international experts and attendees.
