The Birth of the International Degrowth Network

On August 29, 2023, nearly 100 passionate advocates, academics, and practitioners gathered in Zagreb, Croatia, to envision a more sustainable future. Building on the Beyond Growth 2023 Conference, the 4th Assembly focused on enhancing transparency, collaboration, and democratic decision-making within the movement. The Organising the Degrowth Network (ODN) led this effort, with their proposal now adopted by the Assembly. The IDN, comprising over 25 founding organizations, is a dynamic force dedicated to catalysing radical transformation. It encompasses various Working Group Circles (WGCs) and welcomes individuals and organizations that share its vision of a just and sustainable world.
