Hi there!

Dear team at Degrowth,

my name is Ainara Fernández, I am currently finishing my masters on urban public policy at Sciences Po Paris. I am doing an internship in the research team at United Cities and Local Governments and writing my thesis on social housing.

I studied International Business Economics for my undergrad and I developed a strong aversion for the economic world order as it is. I am super interested in degrowth as an urgent alternative to the current definition of what being a “successful” city means. Namely, degrowth as moving away from the paradigm of economic growth as the only acceptable driver of urban development.

If anything I mentioned before could potentially be interesting for you and I could collaborate with the project in any way, please let me know!

Thank you for doing such a cool job! Un abrazo!

Ainara F.
