Changemakers for Degrowth: Degrowth & Extractivism

24th October, 10:00-17:30 (CEST)  |  Registration


2 of 3 events Organized by CATAPA. This year we will be hosting a series of events which will be dedicated to the topic of Degrowth. In three separate sessions (one online, one in Ghent and one in Brussels), we are aiming to introduce this year’s participants to the topic of Degrowth, the impacts of big scale mining and metal consumption (focus: our ICT), as well as equip them with the necessary tools and strategies to construct a more conscious and just society.
