Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!


Initiated by the Austrian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management the second international conference “Growth in Transition” will take place from 8 to 10 October 2012 in Vienna, Austria. It is organised together with more than 20 partner institutions (ministries, provincial governments, representations of interest, NGOs and companies).


What is it about?

Our present structures, ways of thinking and acting, which are geared towards quantitative growth, are on the test stand. We aim at jointly developing concrete ideas of alternatives ways of acting.

We ask what should grow, what is finite and how we want to do business, live our lives and work in the future. Which kind of prosperity do we want and how do we shape the transition process from within?


In the name of all co-organisers we cordially invite you to join the conference. Find enclosed the link to our website where you can take a look at the actual version of the programme.
