In this week’s podcast, our event director, Zilun, talk about ‘degrowth’, the radical idea which tries to understand development beyond economic growth. Instead, degrowth focuses on sustainability, equality, fairness and justices alongside simple measures of economic prosperity. To supporters of degrowth, it is the way to understand development holistically and with a sharper focus on well-being – all of which are currently overlooked by economic growth. Zilun is joined by Dr. Giacomo D’Alisa, one of the founding members of the Degrowth movement to discuss the implications and feasibility in our modern day world.
