|Description:||First International Degrowth Conference|
|Subject:||Economic growth is more and more questioned internationally. A debate has been developing the last years in France on the concept of "Sustainable De-growth". The question reaches the researchers: the so-called "decoupling" between ecological degradation and economic growth appears insufficient after years of important eco-efficiency improvements. We call scientists of all disciplines and all countries to contribute to th is conference held in Paris in April 2008 on the topic of "Sustainable Degrowth for Sustainability and Equity". Could economic de-growth be considered in developed countries in order to overcome social and environmental problems ? Would this economic degrowth require new economic institutions? Which economic institutions would enable "economic degrowth" in order to reach an ecologically sustainable and fair economy? Under which conditions would this be socially acceptable?
