Introducing the Post Growth Fellowship

Decolonizing the systems we inhabit, while nurturing a shared vision of collective wellbeing within ecological limits.

An equitable, post-growth future relies on decolonizing our thoughts and the systems we inhabit, while continuing to nurture a shared vision of collective wellbeing within ecological limits.

The inaugural Post Growth Fellowship, launched by the Post Growth Institute on September 1st 2021, is a 12-month content collaboration with selected post-growth activists, researchers, and entrepreneurs.

The overarching aim of the program is to decolonize post-growth ideas, information, and inspiration by engaging Fellows from a range of backgrounds, fields, cultures, histories, and geographies. The Fellowship seeks to counter the often academic, Euro-centric, English-speaking, white male dominance within formal post-growth and degrowth ‘settings’, simultaneously highlighting the shared nature of the struggle for alternatives beyond capitalist growth dependency and systemic oppression.

The result of a decade-long vision to unify diverse voices with a common, post-growth intent, we’re thrilled to introduce the first cohort of 25 Post Growth Fellows:
