GDD & Corona virus - How to proceed

Hello @activism group! This is Coni from

I will follow this closely as it will be of great importance to communicate in time the outcome of your discussion. I think moving the events to digital format is the way to go.

Also, the editorial team at the blog wrote an article about coronavirus from a degrowth perspective, did you see it? If anyone from this group is interested in collaborating with the blog we are always looking for degrowth-related opinion pieces. The current situation is so confusing and surreal… I feel like now more than ever it’s very important to have a clear message.

Hi @conihepp,
in our phone call today we decided to offer some support for going virtual on the GDD. We will get in touch with Eva (newsletter) for some more details.
Also these details will shortly appear on the webpage.

Yes, we read the interesting article you mentioned - very good!
In our updated call for action we will probably include a suggestion to produce opinion pieces like you mentioned above.
