Post consumerist economy
What happens to the event industry, if the economic system changes? The
dependency of the eoconimic system on consumerism and growth is an
one-way road, not only for the event industry. Even the idea of effiency
and green growth to prevent an ecological collaps, trust on the
availabiliy of natural ressource, which are not renewable. In the
session, we'd like to discuss the general idea of post-consumerism and
look at some good examples, organizing an event with limited use of
ressources and without the idea of growth.
