On Tuesday 18 September, MAGIC Coordinator Mario Giampietro participates in the public debate on Squaring the Energy Circle in the European Parliament. The event is part of the Post-Growth 2018 Conference, a multi-stakeholder gathering organized by ten Members of the European Parliament representing six political groups: Philippe Lamberts, Florent Marcellesi and Molly Scott-Cato (Greens/EFA), Alojz Peterle (EPP), Fabio Castaldo and Dario Tamburrano (EFDD), Gerben-Jan Gerbrandy (ALDE), Marisa Matias (GUE) and Guillaume Balas (S&D). The aim of the event is to re-think future policies and discuss alternatives respecting the environment, human rights and viable economic development.
