KC Legacion is a Master of Environmental Studies candidate at the University of Pennsylvania. His research presents a reimagined understanding of social media through the lens of degrowth—this project will culminate in a short film set to premiere in September of this year. Outside of their research, KC is a team member of the web collective degrowth.info and a member of a nascent housing cooperative in West Philadelphia.

“What does degrowth mean for the Global South? There are some thoughts that degrowth in the Global North would facilitate self-determination in the Global South because the Global North would no longer have this extractive relationship. There's also a critique to that, saying that degrowth in the Global North can and will have repercussions on the Global South just given the interconnected nature of our globalized realities.

Degrowth was first formulated in 1972 by French philosopher André Gorz in a public debate where he used the term décroissance to question whether planetary stability was compatible with capitalism.”
