Degrowth public policies module is focused on defining and exemplifying what are Public Policies within the premises of degrowth, and on how citizens can organize themselves and develop co-management systems to produce public goods.
The objective is to end up with a concrete proposal for Montemor-o-Novo in terms of implementation of degrowth policies. Local agents will be at the core of this module as they have been developing projects in the last decades already within what could be conceived as degrowth projects, knowing in practice the needs and challenges associated with their implementation in this region.
