Measure growth differently – to reconsider forms and types of value

The standard measures of growth—those of GDP and economic expansion—are completely counter to climate justice because this kind of growth is accompanied by extraction and exploitation. Economic growth is inexorably matched by material growth which breaks planetary boundaries. Think instead of other ways of measuring growth in what you do—growth of equality, of health, of wellbeing, of biodiversity, of planetary care—building other economies that support rather than profit from ecology.
