Here at the Post Growth Institute, we collaboratively develop ideas, programs, events, and alliances that promote the equitable circulation of money, power, and natural resources in our local communities and global economy. Each month we publish an overview of our key activities and impact through the various pillars of our work.

Post-Growth Living

Two years ago wildfires tore across Southern Oregon, where the PGI headquarters are based. The disaster disproportionately impacted Latinx communities, many of whom lost their homes. PGI team members Donnie and dani helped in the immediate relief effort and also facilitated the founding of an organization with the goal of community ownership of the homes being rebuilt. After fundraising $43,000, the organization’s 501(c)3 status and the money raised was given to Coalición Fortaleza which has long been involved in the collaboration, and recently confirmed the successful purchase of Southern Oregon’s first resident-owned community.

Post-Growth Entrepreneurship

This month, we published an interview with Post Growth Fellow, Djemilah Hassani, about the Social Economy in Mayotte and its role in the process of decolonization. The article was republished in Resilience and also in El-Telegraphthe most widely read Arabic newspaper in Australia.

Associate Professor of Global Development & Political Science at the University of Toronto Scarborough, Caroline Shenaz Hossein, who is also a Post Growth Fellow, subsequently shared that her class would be reading the piece as a case study.

Meanwhile, we relaunched our Offers and Needs website, with a brand new design and navigation. You can register for the next free, public OANM here.

Post-Growth Economics

Post Growth Fellow, Sabrina Chakori, spoke to Marc Buckley on Inside Ideas about systemic change for ecologically sustainable degrowth societies.

How our work is changing us

We recently welcomed Priyanka Das, who works in our Offers and Needs Market circle, to the PGI family. Reflecting on her time with us so far, Priyanka shared:
