    Introduction

    Degrowth ("Décroissance" in french) is a left-wing 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 to Degrowth, 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.

    The ideas of Degrowth come largely from the axiom, "We cannot infinitely grow in a finite world". Degrowth emphasizes the need to reduce global consumption and production, and 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.
