Aston University Green Week Free Post Growth Event on 11 February
As economic growth continues to be heralded as the cure for all financial and other woes by mainstream politicians, business leaders and media commentators, outside the mainstream the realization that such growth is in fact not the solution but the opposite is beginning to gain real traction in many arenas. The idea that we are about to enter a post-growth world has acquired credibility for those who acknowledge that there are ecological limits to growth. This has led to a series of exciting debates about our future and the regional dimension is a key one that is now major political issue.
The world after growth offers real opportunities to realize a number of universals that have struggled to become realities – equality, justice, peace, prosperity, environmental sustainability, respect and the principle of hope. These universals are no longer the ‘impossibilist’ dreams of political radicals but realistic and necessary conditions for a better world.
