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.
Enough Is Enough: Building a Sustainable Economy in a World of Finite Resources
by Rob Dietz and Dan O’Neill
Published by Routledge in the UK/Europe
We’re overusing the earth’s finite resources, and yet excessive consumption is failing to improve our lives. In Enough Is Enough, Rob Dietz and Dan O’Neill lay out a visionary but realistic alternative to the perpetual pursuit of economic growth—an economy where the goal is enough, not more. They explore specific strategies to conserve natural resources, stabilize population, reduce inequality, fix the financial system, create jobs, and more—all with the aim of maximizing long-term well-being instead of short-term profits. Filled with fresh ideas and surprising optimism, Enough Is Enough is the primer for achieving genuine prosperity and a hopeful future for all.
