Filmscreening: The Commons, Reclaiming What Is Ours.

Filmscreening: The Commons, Reclaiming What Is Ours.

Short url:


7PM - Anti-foodwaste vegan dinner
8.30PM - Degrowth Talk: How do we de-grow polluting sectors of our economy (What is the idea of degrowth? Why How?)
9PM - Filmscreening (EN) about the Commons, those are shared goods, rules and communities. How do they function in practice and how can we organize ourselves and our needs in this way?

Hopefully this evening will give some inspiration about what a ecological & democratic transformation of our economy could look like. Everyone welcome!

About the movie:
The Commons: Reclaiming What Is Ours is about communities re-asserting  sustainable futures using consensus, equity and shared resources – ancient  Commons principles. In the face of increasing privatization and destruction of  commons, activists are re-awakening commons communities: maker spaces,  land trusts, cooperatives, local food production and distribution, shared housing, free education, community centers – all as Commoners stewarding what they  share.

This filmscreening is organised by Ontgroei (Degrowth NL). After the movie, we will have a little discussion on how the practices shown in the movie are linked to the Degrowth ideology.

About Degrowth

Degrowth is a social movement and academic field that envisions pathways to a sustainable future. These pathways include a democratic and redistributive downscaling of the material size of the global economy, a measure that would allow societies to stay within the reproductive limits of ecosystems. Originated in the early 2000s, degrowth is now widely researched and practiced across Europe.
