Better rather than more: opportunities and prospects of a post-growth economy

Grüne Wirtschaft, the Austrian Green Entrepreneurs Association, is organising a debate on the opportunities a green economy could bring in the near future.

Date: 24th May 2012
Venue: Saal des Zentralverbandes Haus und Eigentum, Wien
Language: Austrian

What could bring a green economy to our society? How to imagine a better life beyond the growth mania? Who dares to break this taboo and think about what comes next?

The Carl von Ossietzky University in Oldenburg has been at the forefront of this debate. Oliver Richters is a member of this organisation and will give a stimulating keynote speech on new ideas and developments about the green economy.

Then Mercedes Echerer, former Austrian Green MEP, will join the debate and expose new models of thinking our economic and social development for the future.
