A new map is growing. A #degwoth-Map. Together with the global degrowth-movement we joint the coalition for the Global Degrowth Day (GDD) at the 6th of June. Till then we want to know all Initiatives with a post growth philosophy and make them visible on the map.

Degrowth-Mapathon started

Today, 7th May, we started with a Webinar to get to know each other and collect all entries. Here is the protocoll (please click on the picture):

Outcomes and next steps:

  • We explained, how the map is working and what Hashtags are important to map degrwoth worldwied.
  • We tried to find a responsible host for each reagion. Updates about the mapping process in each country and where we still look for regional coordinators, are shared here:
    • If you can support the mapathon in your region, country or continent, please write a mail to jean.aillon@gmail.com
    • We will send you a list of Initiatives, you can check and map, and/or you can just check thos we have allready on the map and add all new ones you know about.
  • We want to finish mapping till the 25th of May, so that there is still some time till the Global Degrowth Day:
  • In the press article about the GDD the map should be mentioned and published! As many blogger and webpages should spread the map, here is how it works: https://blog.vonmorgen.org/en/iframes-2/
