Degrowth and resource extraction - views from the Global South


Economic growth is closely linked to the resource intensive production and consumption in the capital driven global economy. Degrowth is discussed as systemic solution to the fatal downsides of this economic model. But what about countries which depend on resource extraction for poverty alleviation? Can degrowth give an answer to the dilemma between global sustainability and global freedom from want? The workshop is offering a platform for discussion with activists from DR Congo and Zimbabwe.
