On January 25 Misum arranged a seminar initiated by the strong responses to Misum’s debate article “The government misses the main issue: consumption must decrease” by Lin Lerpold and Örjan Sjöberg (DN 9/10). We gathered researchers, politicians, business and civil society members to try to crack the nut.


How can we make money without selling more? Can we consume less and still be a welfare state? What happens to global resources if we continue to consume more?
