Meeting Our Needs Within Earth’s Limits

This workshop introduces the Human Scale Development Approach, developed by ‘barefoot economist’ Manfred Max-Neef and colleagues, and sets out its uses as a tool for economic and social regeneration. We will explore how HSD allocates value to those aspects of life currently outside economic discourse and ask whether a framework based on fundamental human needs may help us develop notions of sufficiency and embed within economic practice the concept of ‘enough’.
