About the event
1. Happier and sustainable. Possibilities for a post-growth society
Sustainability is possible and does not have to cost the well-being of current generations.
Social and environmental degradation are consequences of emphasizing GDP as a measure of progress. By empowering people to pursue their own well-being, we can benefit the environment, enable collective action to address public issues, and this in turn positively affects productivity and health, thereby instilling a virtuous cycle for a peaceful and respectful coexistence with other species on Earth. Promoting cooperation and social relations is the starting point of a new definition of social progress, one in which people’s ability to enjoy life is decoupled from what they have.
