Monday 26th June, 7.30pm

Economic growth is central to mainstream economics. Politicians insist that growth is the solution to all our problems, including climate heating.

Degrowth theory poses a radical alternative to conventional thinking and policy discussions.

Degrowth sees ‘sustainable growth’ as a contradiction in terms. Rather, a sustainable future depends on a break with the drive for economic growth which will continue to devour nature in pursuit of a phantom prosperity.

You are invited to join ILEF on Monday 26 June, 7:30pm to discuss and debate with Giorgos Kallis co-editor of The Case for Degrowth.

Giorgos Kallis is one of degrowth’s leading thinkers and activists. His books include Limits: Why Malthus was Wrong and Why Environmentalists Should Care.

This meeting is open to the public. Please invite others who might be interested.
Islington Labour Environmental Forum (ILEF) is a forum for discussion, campaigning and activity on the environment, coordinated by the environmental officers from both Islington North and Islington South CLPs.
