On 18-20 September 2018, scientists, politicians, and policymakers are gathering in Brussels for a landmark conference in Brussels, the first Post-Growth Conference for Europe.

Hosted at the EU parliament, the three day event is a joint effort by multiple stakeholders and MEPs from various political groups, set out to explore visions and solutions for a post-growth economy in Europe.

The Post-Growth 2018 Conference builds on thematic workshops organised by a variety of parliamentarians, political groups and organisations; and will be followed by a wrap-up session hosted by the European Trade Union Confederation. CUSP Director Prof Tim Jackson will be giving a keynote presentation at the opening session on Tuesday, 18 September.

An open letter to raise awareness for the conference and the underlying Post-Growth Challenge was published in the Guardian. Signed by 238 leading economists and scientists, the letter was translated into 15 languages and published in leading newsletters across Europe. A petition based on the letter can be accessed and signed via the degrowth.org website.
