These early days of the 21st century are profoundly troubled. We have inherited economic theories and structures that are fuelling the rise of a global 1% and simultaneously driving us towards climate breakdown and ecological collapse. An economic transformation that promotes human flourishing on a thriving planet is irrefutably and urgently needed.
In 2017, Kate Raworth published Doughnut Economics: seven ways to think like a 21st century economist as a strategic act of advocacy to promote this transformation.
Doughnut Economics calls for economies that are regenerative and distributive by design, so that they can meet the needs of all people within the means of the living planet.
Over the past few years, the core concepts of Doughnut Economics have had fast-growing traction and resonance internationally and are now being turned into practice by innovative teachers, city officials, business entrepreneurs, tech designers, community changemakers, pioneering policy-makers, artists, urban planners, and many more.
Inspired by the spontaneous uptake of the book’s core concepts, in 2019, Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL) was founded to turn the ideas of Doughnut Economics from a radical idea into irresistible practice.
In this webinar you'll learn how DEAL is working with changemakers worldwide - in communities, education, cities and places, business and government and more - to put the ideas of Doughnut Economics into transformative action in order to bring about systemic change.
