    Mental Models of Sustainability: The Degrowth Doughnut Model

    Domazet, M., Rilović, A., Ančić, B., Andersen, B., Richardson, L., Brajdić Vuković, M., Pungas, L. and T. Medak. 2020. Mental Models of Sustainability: The Degrowth Doughnut Model. Encyclopedia of the World’s Biomes, 276-286 pp.

    The doughnut model provides a base for guiding strategies for urgent and radical socio-metabolic transformation that human communities must put into practice to achieve global just sustainability. It visually quantifies existing social reproduction deviations in the chosen units (nations, regions) from the abstract safe and just operating space. This space is defined by boundaries and thresholds of biophysical, socioeconomic, and cultural downscaled and normalized indicator values; based on a principle-theory paradigm of realistically sustainable flourishing of people and planet.

    Degrowth in Movement(s). Exploring pathways for transformation

    Schmelzer, Matthias; Burkhart, Corinna; Treu, Nina (Hrsg.) (2020): Degrowth in Movement(s). Exploring pathways for transformation. Winchester and Washington: Zero Books.

    Degrowth is an emerging social movement that overlaps with proposals for systemic change such as anti-globalization and climate justice, commons and transition towns, basic income and Buen Vivir. Degrowth in Movement(s) reflects on the current situation of social movements aiming at overcoming capitalism, industrialism and domination. The essays ask: What is the key idea of the respective movement? Who is active? What is the relation with the degrowth movement? What can the degrowth movement learn from these other movements and the other way around? Which common proposals, but also which contradictions, oppositions and tensions exist? And what alliances could be possible for broader systemic transformations?
