Ethical Consumer Conference 2024

At Ethical Consumer Conference 2024, we'll ask: Can economic degrowth lead to a sustainable future?

Connect with people, ethical businesses, and campaign groups to explore our collective power and the change we can ignite in our communities.

Conference Friday 8th November 2024


Our Ethical Consumer Conference focuses on bringing our communities together and building resilience in response to climate crises and the rising cost of living.

Connect with activists, ethical businesses, and others across the week and be inspired to bring about change.

We will spotlight inspiring organisations and innovative regenerative approaches that are responding to the challenges we face.


Ethical Consumer Conference

We are holding an engaging in-person conference, where you’ll meet the EC team, ethical businesses, and other attendees.

The conference will explore the concept of degrowth and examine its implications for consumers and producers in various sectors, from fashion to finance. We'll be asking the questions:

  • As the consequences of infinite economic growth continue to take their toll on species and habitats worldwide, what is the practical path to a less destructive system?
  • What does a society that thrives on economic degrowth look like?
  • What might the impacts be for jobs and livelihoods? What role does the government and businesses need to play?

The day will include:

  • Workshops and open discussions
  • Networking sessions
  • Stalls from ethical organisations and Best Buy companies
  • A chance to meet like-minded people
