We need a new social, moral and political philosophy of living together, since we are convinced that democracy and ecological survival cannot rely any longer on the idea of infinite economic growth. Thus, we have to oppose the global hegemony of finance capitalism and look for various forms of prosperity without growth. A first draft of this philosophy has been sketched out by 'The Convivialist Manifesto' (2013), written or endorsed by dozens of French speaking intellectuals, academics, and activists. It is about time to go further and to call for a transnational convivialist movement.
