Good episode? Give it some love!
VinhoVin Coach Filipa Carlos from Lisbon obtained her PhD in the field of Sustainable Energy Systems and is currently seeking solutions to answer some of the most intriguing questions in transition such as whether and how it is possible "to introduce the concept of degrowth while keeping our society connected and with our standards of well-being [...], equity and fairness".  Filipa is happy to discuss the questions with you as a listener and she recommends the following readings: 
An essay from Byung-Chul Han about an era of excessive positivity. The name in English is "The burnout Society": https://www.google.com/search?tbm=bks&q=isbn:97808…
The book "O filho de mil homens" is translated to Spanish (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40119790-el-hi…) and French (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31311225-le-fi…) but not to English, unfortunately. In any case, considering the diversity of the Journey, there are several international versions of his books, so as an author I would recommend him (very poetic)!
