With corona getting me down, I scrap my original plan of talking about the post-corona degrowth utopia to talk about scaled back ambitions and life in the new corona reality. Inside of giving myself a new challenge, I’m opting for can-do invitations. Plus, a lottery for basic income during the coronavirus crisis (mein-grundeinkommen.de) and more on the DC Environmental Film Festival (dceff.org).
This week I talk about what degrowth can mean at home, and give tips on how to create spaces for “enough” stuff not to morph into “too much.” I crunch the climate numbers on living smaller based on a recent article in “Energy Policy” by Immanuel Stiess, Anja Umbach-Daniel, and Corinna Fischer. And my local voting official is giving me hope this week!
