On 21 March, the online event Dismantling the Growth Narrative took place. This event, organised by the Green European Foundation, addressed how the growth ideology has become hegemonic; how to move towards the construction of new paradigms; and how to get the message across to society, among other issues. It also saw the launch of the Spanish version of the report On the Growth Narrative: Unlearning dogmas.
