Degrowth and Deep Adaptation

Enough! will support a small number of individuals who are active or exploring issues connected to Degrowth and Deep Adaptation to undertake low carbon learning journeys to projects/people in Europe who may have experience, expertise or approaches that may be of interest in Scotland. The individuals who undertake these journeys represent a variety of backgrounds and perspectives.


Using the FairTransport ships individuals or pairs will travel from Scotland to mainland Europe. The ship we will use is the Nordlys which sails without an engine and is possibly the world’s oldest cargo ship (1873) still working. From there, they will embark on a predetermined route to meet with projects/people of interest. Each participant will document their journey and learning and will be required to develop materials e.g podcasts, interviews, articles to disseminate following their journey.


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 around Europe. We are seeking to change the pace and give people a new experience – a new modality to help refresh / awaken / enliven ourselves. The idea is to connect people throughout Europe working on responses to new climate realities, degrowth and deep adaptation. The purpose is to support people working in community in Scotland by offering them the chance to travel and engage with ideas across the continent. By being asked to articulate their own project, community or work they may gain insight from afar. In doing this we are creating a loop back to Scotland bringing new ideas and people and contacts
