On Friday 28 April, before the lecture, we offer the opportunity to participate in the Post Growth Toolkit Game. Tickets available for 15 euro (including entrance to the lecture). Get them here.
At the intersection of science and speculative fiction, Post Growth Toolkit [The Game] is an invitation to reprogram ourselves out of the economic growth orthodoxy. It proposes to literally reshuffle our world-views through a compilation of stories, concepts and tactics in order to stimulate new modes of understanding in the context of current environmental crises. It takes the form of a tactical card game inviting players to explore a number of key notions to facilitate collective debate.
Focusing on notions such as planetary limits, the rebound effect, ecosystem services and the seventh-generation principle, this game is designed to help cultivate a community and a set of theoretical and narrative tools that re-examine the utilitarian vision of nature conceived merely as a standing reserve for human industry, delegitimising the logic of resource optimisation, and technological solutionism. These proposals seek to encourage the prototyping and envisioning of radically different modes of living in relation with our environment.
