as agreed on in our meeting I created a pad for the collection of mailing lists,… to send out a save-the-date notice: https://pad.degrowth.net/omFu4rSDS52C5X_oyGM6hQ#. I already started with some forums I’m active.
Additionally it came to my mind, that it would be helpful to have “supporters” for our Global Degrowth Day. For 2018 we collected a nice number of German organizations, which are active in the degrowth context. Supporter means, that such an organization …
- will participate on that action day and
- will inform all their “followers”, i.e. they make this event public via their channels.
In return we list these organizations on our website, so we make them more visible (so it’s a win-win action).
You can have a look at the page https://www.degrowth.info/de/projekte/gutleben/unterstuetzer_innen/ , how we did it.
This has the advantage, that if we contact other groups they can see directly that also other “important player” are participating. Additionally the event gets viral on its own
- Do you know such candidates, especially outside Germany (for Germany we can take the existing list: Fairbindung e.V., Förderverein Wachstumswende e.V., netzwerk n e.V., Konzeptwerk Neue Ökonomie, ILA Werkstatt, IÖW – Institut für ökologische Wirtschaftsforschung, FUTURZWEI, attac (AG Jenseits des Wachstums), Deutscher Naturschutzring, BUND (Bund für Umwelt und Naturschutz Deutschland), Wandelwoche, Common Future, ecapio, Transition Town, Denkhaus Bremen, Netzwerk Grundeinkommen, BUNDjugend)?
- We have to contact these candidates. For this we need a short letter, explaining what the global degrowth day is about and what we expect from them and what they get. We could recycle the letter from last year and translate it into English and other languages (for this we need help).
What do you think?
