How is it possible to follow the ideas of degrowth while living in a society advocating growth?[Research paper] by Anne Hurand

2008-10-05

The author was part of the "Alternative Management" third year program in HEC Paris in 2007/2008.

“Degrowth” is the idea that an unlimited growth is impossible in a world with limited resources. Degrowth supporters intend to reduce the impact of their actions on ecology and social matters. What are their motives? How is it possible for them to do so in a society driven by consumerism? This essay proposes to examine the environment of people advocating degrowth today in France thanks to twenty-six qualitative interviews.
