How to change - applied post-growth economy

Boris Woynowski (Wachstumswende e.V.)

In view of ecological, social and economic crises, an economic growth that exceeds the tolerance of the ecosystem boundaries neither appears to be a sustainable option, nor a desirable development trend. Thus, individual and social change processes are required to ensure long-term prosperity and quality of life. These transition processes - away from the focus on economic growth and moving towards socially and ecologically tolerable economic practices and lifestyles with the goal of a cohesive post-growth economy or post-growth society – are summarized as "growth turn”.

Boris Woynowski’s and the members’ of the “Förderverein Wachstumswende e.V.” (a registered supportive association supporting growth turn) declared goal in relation to this socio-ecological transformation towards a post-growth economy or post-growth society according to the bylaws is

- to analyze with scientific methods
- to realize ecologically and socially responsible forms of business and lifestyles themselves and
- to make the knowledge about it accessible to public and politics the form of education

In this context, the association pursues the non-profit interest of promoting education.

Boris Woynowski assumes the introduction of the theme day »P-Day«
