16: Alternative Sustainable Economic Concepts

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / World Café
German and English language

Supported by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management of the Republic of Austria
Based on the incessant demand for growth, we will ask “What should grow?”. What may an economic system look like that meets people’s needs and, at the same time, takes into account natural ecological limits? What success stories are there, showing that it is possible to choose alternative and sustainable economic activities? We will start this breakout session with three inspiring inputs, based on which the participants will then discuss these questions in an interactive format.
