(A different kind of) Economic Lunch Briefing

Location TBC

We are delighted to invite you to (A different kind of) Economic Lunch Briefing with our keynote speaker Hans Stegeman (NL) and his Czech counterpart Tadeáš Žďárský.
The event is organized in cooperation with the Spanish and Canadian Chambers of Commerce.

The need to discuss and pursue a post-growth economy has become increasingly apparent. We now recognize the limitations of unrestrained economic activity, as evidenced by the breach of 6 out of 9 planetary boundaries. Additionally, achieving the Sustainable Development Goals has proven elusive, highlighting the urgency to reevaluate our approach. It is evident that simply increasing economic activity is not a sustainable solution.

Therefore, a profound societal transformation is imperative. Transitioning towards a post-growth economy offers numerous advantages—it allows us to operate within ecological boundaries while ensuring a sufficient social minimum for all. This transformation is not only feasible but necessary for a sustainable and equitable future.

Hans Stegeman is the chief economist at Triodos Bank, where he oversees economic and sustainability research, as well as Triodos' impact strategy. His work revolves around a fundamental understanding that our economic system requires significant changes, with the financial sector playing a pivotal role in this transformation. Before joining Triodos, he held various positions at Rabobank, CPB (the Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis) and the labour union ABVAKABO. Hans is an avid writer, contributing to various media outlets with insightful columns and articles.

Tadeáš Žďárský, Environmentalist and a founder of the student initiative Udržitelný Palacký strives to popularize the Degrowth theory in the Czech Republic.
