RESPONDER Final Conference in Brussels, April 2014

Expressions of Interest

The European project RESPONDER (http://www.scp-responder.eu/) deals with potential political, social and economic contradictions between sustainable consumption and economic growth. Contradictions are dealt with by trying to link 4 different communities: scientists and policymakers on the one hand, and on the other, what could be called the “pro-growth community” (mostly mainstream economists and policy makers oriented towards the EU Lisbon Strategy) and the “beyond-growth community” (mostly scientists and ecological economists highlighting biophysical limits to growth, social movements in several European member states and policy makers involved in the sustainable development debate). In order to do so, the European project RESPONDER is based on Knowledge Brokerage Events (KBE) that use the technique of System Mapping with participation of academics, civil society activists and policy-makers. Ten KBE have taken place since 2011 on a variety of topics in the framework of a discussion on sustainability and economic growth and two European dialogues. Neo-liberal, Keynesian and Post-Growth perspectives are welcome in the analysis on 1) the food system, 2) ICT technologies 3) transport, mobility, 4) housing and urban planning   5) household savings, financial and environmental sustainability. » Read the full article

How to create space for change? Rediscovering the power of community

6-7 June 2013, Berlin (Germany)

Our ambition is for InContext results to inspire change in communities around Europe. With a number of events scheduled in 2012 and early 2013 we already exchanged powerful ideas and lessons learned from transition processes in communities throughout Europe. In June 2013 the final conference of InContext, together with the Informed Cities Forum 2013 will bring a creative platform to do so again.
