Respecting planetary boundaries while enhancing the well-being of all (Part of Degrowth 2014)

4 September 2014 at 14:30 - 16:30

The aim of the workshop was to explore how the imperatives of living within the limits of the planet and sharing its resources more equitably could be implemented.

Firstly, participants listened very briefly to already existing examples of “equity within limits” initiatives including top-down (e.g. policies) as well as bottom-up (e.g. communities) examples with the help of posters and other materials. Secondly, they discussed in detail what every day people can do in practice for respecting planetary boundaries and what obstacles people face when they would like to live in a sustainable way respecting planetary boundaries
