The Post Growth Institute’s mission is to help lead the transition to a world where human systems thrive within ecological limits. Inspired by the wisdom of natural systems, we celebrate, support and develop ideas, programs and alliances that promote the circulation of money, power and resources in our local communities and global economy. Each month we publish an overview of our key activities and impact through the various pillars of our work.
In exciting news, we’re thrilled to have received another round of funding from a generous donor. We’ll be sharing more details in January, along with our big plans for 2023.
Also this month, Post Growth Fellow, Monika Bielskyte’s interview that we published here recently was reposted on Resilience.

Meanwhile, a graduate of our OANM Facilitator Training shared some inspiring feedback. He said:
