How can we change our economic paradigm of endless growth, in an era in which human activity impacts Earth’s environment so profoundly? The biosphere of the Earth is as big as it gets. If you look at the Earth from space, it turns out to be a zero-sum game. Economic growth ultimately comes at the expense of the living space of all species.

What kind of economic system does not worship unlimited growth as its ultimate goal? Which models can we develop that are in synch with the social and planetary boundaries? How to create a better future, in a world where the economists look at economic value and technologists rely on the promise of technology to fix all ills with more technology?

Economia – The Limited Edition presents unexpected and playful approaches looking at the foundations of our economy, establishing a fresh point of view on the notion of value and economic growth. The festival is a laboratory of ideas; a place where, for a while, we can step out of the existing frame and approach economics in an unexpected, playful and fundamental manner. The program consists of a series of online lectures, debates, game sessions, an exhibition and a conference. The edition of the festival takes place from June 25th until October 31st.

Since the outbreak of the financial crises in 2008 and the pandemic more recently, the uncertainty about the effectiveness and validity of the neoliberal model increased considerably. Economics, in its present form, provides no solution to issues of climate change and social inequality. It cannot help us organize social alliances, raise public interest or develop long-term prospects. Its results no longer appeal.

In order to be able to challenge our economic system, humanity needs more intuition, holistic awareness and multidisciplinary thinking. Economia – The Limited Edition invites everyone to critically explore how to invert the paradigm of unlimited growth and reclaim economy as we see fit.
