We are aligned with and inspired by The Degrowth Declaration of The Paris Conference, The Degrowth Declaration of The Barcelona Conference, and The People’s Agreement of Cochabamba. We understand degrowth as a plural concept that could include all the ideas and movements that criticise growth-based societies and propose post-growth and post-capitalist alternatives. We recognise that a degrowth transition requires a significant democratic reduction of material and energy use by high-income countries and wealthy individuals to enable a good life for all through an economic system that prioritises the well-being of the Earth and its inhabitants rather than growth for growth's sake. We strive towards the adoption of ideas and practices in line with degrowth, in the above sense, within all spheres of society.
