Prosperity Without Growth report and Post-Growth discussion


Are there limits to growth?

Every year countries and companies are chasing economical growth. At the same time, although increased use of renewable resources and improved efficiency and technologies, so far it is still not possible to decouple economical growth and the use of resources. Noticing that we have finite resources on this planet, are we fooling ourselves by building everything based on the assumption that there is no limits to growth?

We would like to invite you to explore this huge elephant in the room - first we will present some findings from the report "Prosperity Without Growth" by Tim Jackson from the Sustainable Development Commission in the UK, then there will be discussions with the attendees on whether or not infinite growth is possible and also various options for post-growth economy.

More info
Prosperity Without Growth is a book by author and economist Tim Jackson. It was originally released as a report by the Sustainable Development Commission. The study rapidly became the most downloaded report in the Commission's nine-year history when it was published in 2009. The report was later that year reworked and published as a book by Earthscan.
