This bachelor thesis studies the concept of Degrowth as an alternative strategy for a social and ecological transformation. The focus lays on Commons and Commoning, an alternative form of society and economy, based on common goods, beyond the market and the state, that relies on solidarity, cooperation, self-organization and self-determination, currently reflected in numerous projects and initiatives both on a local and on a global scale. The aim is to show that through the emancipatory potential of Commons, new impulses can help fight poverty and offer alternatives to wage labour. This change of perspective establishs the connection to social work. The study will look into the role of critical emancipatory social work in the context of Commons, and her contributions to develop and sustain Commons – taking into account the Capabilities-perspective and community work – to a fairer social and ecological transition.
