Economy and livelihoods after Covid-19
A global on-line symposium of the international degrowth network and the International Society for Ecological Economics.
September 1 to September 4th, 2020.
The sessions will be in the afternoons BST.
Tickets are available for this symposium, co-organised by Steady State Manchester, over four days. It will also be available as livestream on Youtube: links to follow. We’ll be considering the implications of the global Covid-19 pandemic for economy and livelihoods. The Covid-19 pandemic and responses to it have had deeply unequal impacts on lives, livelihoods and well-being across race, gender and class. At the same time it has opened up the space for new possibilities for building alternative livelihoods and economies that can take us beyond a capitalist economy that requires ever expanding growth. Will we go back to business as usual with all the ecological, social and economic risks that will bring or take the path towards a new kind of economy that provides for human needs of all while restoring and protecting the natural world that we all depend on?
