Talks with fellow conference assistants, particularly young researchers, reveal an increasing interest in the concept of “blue degrowth” as a radical sustainability counter-paradigm to the Blue Economy / Blue Growth discourses. Can the concept go beyond its character of slogan or ‘missile word’ and become a research stream for marine social and environmental scientists? I would like to use the free diving session as a meeting ground for those interested in radical sustainability approaches such as degrowth, buen vivir, ecological sawaraj, etc. as systemic alternatives to capitalist-driven global change. It would be a great opportunity for sharing knowledge, interests and generate a breeding ground for research ideas, projects and potential collaborations.
