In the frame of a two day long workshop on Degrowth in postsocialist countries, we invite you to a participative public discussion on the limits to growth. First Miklos Antal will talk about the physical limits to growth and explain why sufficiently fast decoupling is very unlikely. Then Vincent Liegey will present the cultural limits by questioning why always more is far away from a meaningful life.After these introductions, we invite you to participate in the construction of alternatives: how to implement democratic transitions to sustainable, convivial and autonomous new models of society? On what principles would these models be constructed?
