A reframing of ‘managed degrowth’. The Great Transition is a scenario for the transformation of the current development paradigm towards a more socially, culturally and ecologically balanced alternative. Developed by the Global Scenario Group (GSG), an interdisciplinary group of academics and activists, whose website states: ‘This possibility rests on the ascent of a constellation of values – human solidarity, quality of life, and ecological sensibility – to moderate the conventional triad of individualism, consumerism, and domination of culture.’
