Cargonomia and Sustainable CEU, the CEU Department of Environmental Sciences and Policy would like to invite you to a conference event which will explore the prospects for Degrowth in the Central European context, with a particular focus on food production systems. With the input of key regional degrowth experts, we will reflect and debate on how degrowth in practice, as a new matrix of expertise, action and policy, can respond to the environmental, social and peace challenges we face while highlighting the potential of existing food system alternatives within the region. Join us to continue the convivial debate on how degrowth offers a meaningful analysis of the current situation while presenting pathways for peaceful transition from fossil fuel dependency. Registration is required for in person attendance on either or both days of the conference. Please see the full conference program and register here:…/conference-food-degrowth…
