Animal Liberation and Degrowth
Every year, humans kill about 66 billion nonhuman land animals and more than a trillion aquatic individuals for the purpose of consumption. Countless other nonhuman animals are tortured in laboratories or exploited for human clothing, leisure, sports, or work.
The immense suffering of animals contrasts with a general neglect of the issue in left and green movements. In this workshop, we'll consider the practice of animal use from an ethical as well as an ecological perspective and discuss if and how the goal of animal liberation could be integrated into degrowth theory and practice.
