Post-Growth Transformations Stockholm

The association serves three main purposes.

Firstly, to create a platform for students and other societal actors to discuss with, engage with, and learn from one other, focusing on the themes of post-growth and transformative change for sustainability. The motivation to discuss these themes originates from current challenges emerging in increasingly complex societies around the world, particularly those issues concerning sustainable development and environmental degradation. Many different areas of scientific research show us comprehensively that we are undermining the ability of the Earth to support further human development. The imperatives of sustainable development will necessitate transformative and redistributive projects in the centuries ahead. Therefore, to change the current state of affairs and to navigate towards sustainable stewardship of the planet, societal transformations are a necessity. One significant transformation for sustainable stewardship entails changing the current unsustainable economic growth paradigm. We think that a truly sustainable society, draws on an economy that works for all. This means that distribution of wealth and well-being needs to be organized differently. Besides, the economy needs be regenerative for ecosystem processes on which we all rely. A society with an economic paradigm based on growth is unsustainable, whereas a pre-distributive and regenerative society is the most preferable future worth striving to achieve. Therefore, the main purpose of this association is to consider and debate the potential for transformations towards post growth societies, based on inclusive and sustainable economic paradigms.

The second purpose of this association is to help its members to develop professional skills: literacy, communication, active listening, organization and leadership, with a focus on transdisciplinary collaboration (i.e., between academics and non-academics). A key part if this is to enable members to develop responses and concise counter arguments to the growth based economic model. Understanding complexity and building a transdisciplinary skill-set is critical in order to cope with the social and ecological challenges of the twenty first century; therefore, the second purpose is to provide a platform to practice these skills.

The third purpose is bridging this theoretical understanding into practice. This can involve finding practices in the local Stockholm urban area, such as sharing economy initiatives, by reaching out to and engaging with relevant actors and stakeholders in local communities outside academia. Additionally, we will continue to promote the association as a transformative space.

Cinemondo

cinemondo_logo.jpg

CINEMONDO is a non-profit, volunteer organization based in Stockholm, Sweden, which screens movies on a bi-weekly basis.

Our focus is mainly documentaries, but occasionally you will also find another socially engaging film on our screening list.

Those movies may be about social issues, political events, environment, arts or economics. They can be deeply moving, dramatic and unresting, sometimes even disturbing, because Earth has all of that happening. But also playful, fun and simply interesting, because Earth has all of that happening too.

After every screening we are having a discussion with either a person involved in the film – like the director or a leading character – or someone who can give an interesting perspective on the film’s topic. We are striving for having those speakers with us live and in colour, but sometimes we may use remote communication (such as Skype or Google Hangouts) as an alternative.

We at CINEMONDO believe that everyone has an interesting outlook to share. We want to discover new ways to look at life. How do you see the world? Which stories engage you? What do you think?

Let us know!

The Humanities Faculty Club

Welcome to the Humanities Faculty Club (HumF)! We are a non-profit, student-run organisation for humanities students that aims to make student life at Stockholm university more diverse and fun!

Our members can choose from a wide selection of activities, ranging from our traditional Wednesday pub to croquis, Crafter school, film nights and traditional Swedish student dinner parties.

Sittningar - dinner parties

In Sweden, student clubs hold dinner parties for their members (sittningar, also called gasques). On these occasions you dress up nicely, drink and eat a lot and sing traditional Swedish songs. A cultural experience you really shouldn’t miss out on and a perfect opportunity to get to know Swedes!

We at HumF hold a dinner party especially for new or exchange students at the beginning of every semester (we call them Recentiorsmiddag). Apart from that, we have another such party in March on our birthday, as well as one during the autumn semester where we also award our Ugglepriset (Owl’s prize) to honour a person for their contribution to the humanities. We all speak English so international guests are always welcome!

Wednesday pub at Gula Villan

On Wednesdays we have our traditional Wednesday pub at our club house (the yellow house, Gula villan). Sometimes we even have themed pubs such as the Rick & Morty pub or Meet a Swede. We do not charge an entrance fee, so come and hang out with your friends after classes!

Crafter School

Do you feel like there is no room for creativity in your studies? At HumF we cherish your creative side! Members can join us for croquis or come to our Crafter school meetings where we knit, crochet and embroider. We help each other with our designs, no skills required.

Visit us

Our club house, Gula villan (located behind the library) is without question the coziest on campus – what better place to have film nights at than with us! Come and sit in our comfy armchairs, the popcorn’s on the house!
