Development Beyond Growth – Global and Local Perspectives on Just Transitions


Ort / Datum
Bonn and Online, 06.11.2024 bis 07.11.2024


Next Economy Lab (NELA) and German Institute of Development and Sustainability (IDOS)

What can future economic development look like beyond growth? What are best practice examples of alternative economic structures and initiatives in the so-called Global South and Global North? And how can development cooperation support Just Transitions that respect environmental boundaries while enhancing social wellbeing?

These and more questions will be discussed at our conference on the 6th and 7th November 2024. The conference invites practitioners and academics from the Global South and North alike who are interested in alternative models of global and local economic development. Panel discussions, keynotes and interactive workshops will create ample space for the exchange of perspectives, networking and reflection. The program will be complemented by a public evening event in the form of a panel discussion.

Participation is free of charge. Registration for participants will begin in September.
