Institute for Future-fit Economies| Seminar: Development cooperation in a post-growth era

Institute for Future-fit Economies invites: Development cooperation and post-growth in dialogue. An interactive seminar

In the opinion of growth critics, Germany, as a country with a high economic performance, should prepare itself for the fact that the growth rates of the economy will soon be lower or even stop altogether. But what would such a decline in growth mean for countries of the Global South and development cooperation with them?
We will discuss this in an interactive weekend seminar with people who are or want to be active in development cooperation.

Participants will

  • Get an introduction to the main concepts of post-growth
  • Hear what scientists from the Global South say about post-growth concepts
  • Discuss with peers the applicability of post-growth concepts to your own work (i.e. the development cooperation sector)
  • Define insights and concrete actions that you may want to integrate in your work
