Seán Ó Conláin and Caroline Whyte exchange some initial impressions of the European Parliament's recent seminal 'Beyond Growth' conference.
'On his recent visit to Ireland, President Biden said he felt like he was “home.” By giving a speech like President Higgins just gave, and setting up an Ecological Monetary Reform Study Committee, he could prove it,' writes Mike Sandler.
As political leaders gather for a second conference at the European Parliament on how to move “beyond growth”, we, the undersigned academics and civil society organisations, see the geopolitical crisis as an opportunity to disengage from the socially and ecologically harmful growth competition and instead embrace a wellbeing cooperation.
As part of Ireland's National Biovidersity Week, Feasta's Seán Ó Conláin, along with Bríd Ní Dhonnchú and Vanya Lambrecht Ward, are hosting this event in northern County Leitrim on May 21 "to gather and share alternative field notes and to spot the ‘lesser-spotted’, while fine-tuning your senses and your brain".
