Degrowth Conference Budapest 2016: Call for special session

The upcoming conference will be a forum to present the latest in global degrowth thought and practice, and bring it into dialogue within the specific context of Central and Eastern Europe of the 21st century. In this respect, the conference will be organised around 12 themes which reflect the context of the conference and the open issues of the degrowth movement that were highlighted at the preceding conference in Leipzig.

You can apply to present your work through one of the 2 formats of special sessions:

*     Degrowth-in-action special sessions

*     Scientific special sessions

Both special session formats allow the applicants greater freedom in organizing the proceedings of the session to best present their work.

More information about the call is available here.

The deadline to submit your special session is Thursday, 31 December 2015.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us:

We would also like to inform you that it is planned to open the call for individual papers on 15 January 2016, with a closing date of 1 March 2016.
