Abstract:The European project RESPONDER, 265297, Linking research and policy making for managing the contradictions of sustainable consumption and economic growth. Coordinated by RIMAS, Vienna. ICTA organizes two "knowledge brokerage events" on housing and urban planning in 2013 and 2014, and a conference on the economics of green growth, non-growth and degrowth in Brussels in 2014 that we want to call "The Sicco Mansholt Conference".

    RESPONDER - Beyond growth, an alternative to austerity and stimulus paths out of the crisis?[disponible en anglès]

    The final conference of a three and a half-year knowledge broker age project on sustainable consumption and growth took place on 21 March in the European Parliament. The
    RESPONDER project was funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and is led by André Martinuzzi (RIMAS, Vienna University of Economics). The conference, which was organized by the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA) of the Autonomous University of Barcelona and hosted by French and Greek MEPs Yves Cochet and Nikos Chrysogelos, attracted more than 150 policy makers, EU officials, researchers and members of civil society organisations. Tim Jackson, Giorgos Kallis, Inge Ropke and Joan Martinez-Alier were among the keynote speakers who voiced critical thoughts on the implausibility of coupling ecological sustainability and ‘the good life’ with economic growth.[disponible en anglès]
