Nr. 11/2015: Maya Maes and Dirk Holemans provide in this discussion paper a theoretical framework for the ECOPRO-project and discuss new modes of production for a sustainable, low-carbon economy that will foster just societies.
A sustainable, low-carbon economy that fosters just societies requires new modes of production. Maya Maes and Dirk Holemans provide in this discussion paper a theoretical framework for the Ecological Production in a Post-Growth Society (ECOPRO) project. As a follow-up project of Socioecological Reindustrialisation (SERIND), ECOPRO is funded by the Green European Foundation (GEF), and different Green organizations and foundations across Europe. The 10 partners from different European countries will be holding events during the year 2015 exploring pathways for a transition towards a social-ecological production. The partners are Oikos (Belgium), the Austrian Green Foundation, the Heinrich Böll Foundation (Croatia), Visio (Finland), Greenhouse (Great Britain), Greek Green Institute (Greece), Ecopolis Foundation (Hungary), Green Foundation (Ireland), Gréng Steftung (Luxembourg), and the Fundácion Horitzons (Spain).
