Changing Economics: Action Planning for Living in the Doughnut

Kate Raworth, Doughnut Economics 

We know that we need to transform the way we live if we are to prevent climate and ecological breakdown, but we need to make sure that the transformation is socially just. This workshop with renegade economist and author of Doughnut Economics, Kate Raworth, will explore planetary limits and social foundations and kick start action planning for your community that will help catalyse the transition to an ecologically sustainable, and socially just world. Get it right, and there might still be time to learn to live in the doughnut.

Kate Raworth is a renegade economist, dedicated to rewriting economics so that it's fit for tackling the 21st century's challenge of meeting the needs of all people within the means of the planet. After 20 years of wrestling with policies based on outdated economic theories -- via the villages of Zanzibar to the headquarters of the UN and on the campaigning frontlines of Oxfam -- Kate realized that if the economic conversations taking place in parliaments, in boardrooms and in the media worldwide are going to change, then the fundamental economic ideas taught in schools and universities have to be transformed, too.

Kate's book, Doughnut Economics: seven ways to think like a 21st-century economist was published in 2017 and has been translated into 15 languages and has been widely influential amongst sustainable development thinkers, progressive businesses and political activists.
