Accommodation possibilities

Following the philosophy of Degrowth and to enable the conference’s participants to meet and exchange with inhabitants of Budapest, of which some take actively part in initiatives or NGOs and others are just curious about the upcoming event, we offered the possibility to connect with them through our open source hosting platform (the plateform is closed).

Furthermore, you can also use couchsurfing and find a host on the following conference event: https://www.couchsurfing.com/events/5th-international-conference-on-degrowth
