Degrowth ("Décroissance" in french) is a Leftist ideology, leaning towards LibLeft, economically left-wing and culturally variable. It is a political, economic and social concept according to which economic growth brings more harm than benefits to humanity. It is based on ideas from a diverse range of lines of thought such as Environmentalism, ecological economics, Ecofeminism, and environmental justice.
According the degrowth movement, the industrialization process has three negative consequences: dysfunctions of the economy (mass unemployment, precariousness, etc.), alienation at work (stress, moral harassment, multiplication of accidents , etc.) and pollution, responsible for the deterioration of ecosystems and the disappearance of thousands of animal species.
They come from a basic axiom that can be summed up as "We cannot infinitely grow in a finite world". Degrowth emphasizes the need to reduce global consumption and productionand advocates a socially just and ecologically sustainable society with well-being replacing GDP as the indicator of prosperity. Degrowth highlights the importance of autonomy, care work, self-organization, commons, community, localism, work sharing, happiness and conviviality.
