NIFEA E-conference on "Degrowth – Living Sufficiently and Sustainably" [Session 1]
How do we address the contradictions between modern society’s obsession with limitless economic growth and the ecological limits of our only planetary home? Are there models of the good life that meet the needs of all people, share wealth and power, whilst nurturing the environment? What resources do we have and what strategies can we employ as faith communities to empower a just and sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic as well as a just transition from a growth-oriented, extractivist economic paradigm to a life-affirming economy where all of God’s creation can flourish?

Organised by the Council for World Mission, Lutheran World Federation, World Communion of Reformed Churches, World Council of Churches and Word Methodist Council under the New International Financial and Economic Architecture (NIFEA) initiative, the NIFEA E-conference on “Living Sufficiently and Sustainably” will be a space to discuss and unpack various visions of “de-growth” or “post-growth” with a view to addressing the urgent eco-crisis and pandemic of inequality besetting the planet today.

The NIFEA E-conference takes the 6th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (https://www.ipcc.ch/report/ar6/wg1/downloads/report/IPCC_AR6_WGI_SPM.pdf) as a vital backdrop for reflections and aims to promote discussions towards developing a short ecumenical message aimed at the G20 Leaders’ Summit taking place in Rome from 30-31 October 2021 on theme of “People, Planet and Prosperity”.
