Upcoming Event – De-Growth Conference: A way to move forward (Vancouver)
For the past three months, I have had the pleasure of participating in a series of discussions led by Dr. Bill Rees on the subject of the Post-Carbon City. It has been invigorating and exciting to imagine how we will transition out of our fossil fuel dependence. A key theme to these discussions has been: “What will the new economy look like when constrained by the social and ecological limits of our world?”
In a few weeks, this question (and many more) will be explored in greater detail when Vancouver hosts North America’s first ever De-Growth Conference from April 29 to May 2, 2010.
Over the course of those four days, I will be blogging my learnings for Planning Pool and look forward to hearing your thoughts, ideas and comments.
