Sustainable Consumption and Social Justice in a Constrained World

As a member of SCORAI Europe, GreenDependent Institute is co-organizing a scientific workshop with the above title directly before the 5. International Degrowth Conference in Budapest. Among other issues, we will be discussing the following topics and questions:

  • How can we grasp sustainable consumption limits, how are they defined?
  • What heterodox concepts and theoretical strands need to be taken into account?
  • How do limits relate to human needs, human development and wellbeing on the one hand, and planetary boundaries on the other?
  • How does social justice relate to sustainable consumption?
  • What perspectives need to be taken into account? (gender, class, socio-economic status, etc.)
  • What transformative tools are currently available, towards more equitable forms of consumption?
  • How do we quantify and qualify what is meant by social justice in a constrained world?
  • What lessons can we learn from differing contexts?
  • How can restrictions come about, either voluntary or imposed?
  • How do restrictions relate to collective conventions or general understandings of entitlement and excess?
  • What examples exist around policies, institutional changes and political interventions?

The organizers of the workshop are:

After the workshop, the proceedings - including the background papers of presentations as well as discussion notes - will be available for download.
