Newsletter 30 November 2022

Dear readers,

We are currently experiencing a multiple worldwide crisis – we are living under the permanent threat of pandemics; war and climate change prevent the development of a just, sustainable and future-oriented society. Particularly the people of the countries of the Global South will be or have already been strongly affected by these impacts.

But how utopian is the demand for "a good life for all" and what does it take to practically initiate multiple transformation processes in order to enter an anti-capitalist, sustainable post-growth era?

This newsletter contains some contributions that deal with emancipatory, socio-ecological movements, various left approaches and organisational projects for achieving coexistence in a spirit of solidarity and a fundamental change for all.

Furthermore, in this newsletter you can find information on topical events organised by transform! europe and our members.

We wish you interesting reading!
Štefica Gazibara, web editor for transform! europe
