Amidst the prevalence of greenwashing and lukewarm sustainability strategies, sufficiency concepts could serve as a powerful means to reignite the ambition required for a profound societal transformation towards sustainability. However, public debates on sufficiency often remain limited in scope, primarily focusing on reducing excessive individual consumption of resources and energy. Yet, sufficiency is fundamentally an integral component for an inclusive societal transformation. Embracing the aim of a good life for all, how can we effectively translate the principles of sufficiency into a new social understanding within democratic societies? On this we will reflect during a walk, discussing the development of new understandings and their implications for participation processes, governance structures, and existing institutions.
