decolonizing the mind

Proponents of the theory of degrowth claim that in order for people to change their minds about the way they live, they need to “decolonize their imaginary” (Latouche, 2015, pp. 117-120). For proponents of the degrowth theory this battle begins with questioning and altering the way we see ourselves in this world, only then will we be able to alter the desire for what we could have. As the Zapatistas have taught us, first, we need to learn to imagine a better world is possible.
