Radical Wellbeing Alternatives to Development
Co-organizers: Global Diversity Foundation, CED/Peoples' Sustainability Treaties, SADED
The search for alternatives to destructive development and globalisation is yielding diverse approaches to well-being, some ancient (like buen vivir and sumak kawsay in Latin America, ubuntu in southern Africa, and swaraj in South Asia), some very new (like degrowth in Europe, and radical ecological democracy in South Asia). This workshop will bring together a few of these from various parts of the world, to learn from each other, and build common ground.
Speakers: Ashish Kothari, Gary Martin, Uchita de Soyza, Patrick Bond, and others
