Radical Route 3: In Search of Culture and Community in Dark Places

Less

The Degrowth Commission is publishing the first issue of its journal 'Less' in February 2020. This is a call for papers. This is a 'economic and ecological' journal, recognising that the climate crisis is part of a wider socio-ecological crisis. Contributions are invited from anyone, this is not a publication confined to or defined by any academic institution. Issue 1 asks: what does...

‘Deep Adaptation, Deep Solidarity’ film footage: Jem Bendell and Gehan Macleod

On the 21st of September 2019, Enough! hosted (in collaboration with Bella Caledonia and the Centre for Human Ecology) the event Deep Adaptation, Deep Solidarity in the Scottish Youth Theatre in Glasgow to explore the following questions: What does climate breakdown mean for us in practice? How do our lives need to change to respond to an increasingly unstable and unpredictable future? How do we ensure...

Beyond the Lightbulbs: Reflections on Race and Climate Justice

A few years ago, I worked as a community pedagogue for an international development organization in Canada. At the time, one of my key workshops was on the climate crisis. At the conclusion of the seminar, the first question I would get would be, “Okay, but what can  I do? Do you have a handy guide for recycling?” There are many handy guides, it’s...

Amazonia: An International Socio-environmental Crisis

The whole world stopped to watch and mourn the reports on the Amazon fires, which were immediately mistaken for forest fires due to global warming, but were actually man-made. After the true origin of the fires came to light, many blamed the Bolsonaro government's inability for the situation, as, since taking office in January, the retired militarian has defended the expansion of agribusiness in...

Enough! Response to Programme of Government

Enough! Welcomes the Programme of Government as an acknowledgement of and commitment to responding to the Climate Emergency. The Enough Collective, Scotland's new climate and economy think-tank, has issued the following statement on the Scottish Government's Programme for Government and its climate emergency policies.

Community Response takes its first steps: Merkinch, Inverness

The first Enough! community response pilot is taking place in Inverness. Enough's Mairi McFadyen reflects on the project so far.  As a means and rationale for finding a community to work with and in for our community response strand, and to complement our outward-looking European route-map, we began with the idea of the canal as a kind of metaphor or provocation - a change...

Open Call for Enough Routes Project

The Enough! Collective is supporting an individual to undertake a month’s travel through Europe this Autumn. Enough! Is supporting three routes journeys during 2019. We work collaboratively with individuals and support them to create their route-map and equip them with the skills and tools required to get the most out of the project. Through these journeys, Enough! will create a low-carbon route map

Marie Kondo and the Anthropocene

The Netflix craze of the year is the comforting appearance of Marie Kondo bringing her domestic Zen presence to Western homes.  De-cluttering as crisis-management, a sort of pious lifestyle comfort-viewing for the existentially distressed.  It’s the world being sorted by folding towels properly. But there’s a deeper current at play, and that’s the crisis of accumulation. Even Marx knew this: “Accumulate, accumulate! That is Moses and...

An economy for Scotland that’s better than growth?

Katherine Trebeck, author of The Economics of Arrival on why Scotland needs to embrace a de-growth agenda. In 1983 President Reagan declared, ‘There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits to human intelligence, imagination and wonder’.  That was an era when students were striking against the risk of atomic war, when celebrities sang that aid and charity from the west would ‘feed the world’.  It was a time...

Acting Out

Gehan Macleod is one of the people traveling around Europe with our Routes programme. Here she describes where she's coming from and where's shes headed to. Coming from a 90s background in environmental and anti-nuclear activism, I found myself involved in the beginnings of GalGael - a community organisation that originated around a protest fire at Pollok Free State, an anti motorway camp. Since then...
