Being a member

Dear friends,

I recently saw the call for becoming member of the degrowth activist and research groups.

As an academic working on related topics, and with a very deep interest in degrowth, I would be thrilled to be part of this group.

Can you please let me know whether that’s possible, and what you would need from my side at this point?

Thanks so much in advance, and kind regards!

Hello Gert!

Thanx a lot for your interest. You are very welcome to our activism group!

At the moment we are planning the “Global Degrowth Day” for June 1st 2019 (a fusion of the degrowth picnic and the day of good life for all in Germany).

At the moment we are translating the necessary documents in several languages and are still looking for more potential partners.
But we are also open for other projects and are collecting ideas.
If you would like to join, @jean can add you to the mailing list and you will get access to the group communication. Or if you would like to get involved in one of the other groups, there is “Communication and Networking” or “Narratives of Degrowth”. Just let us know!

Best, Anna
