On 13 November 2023, the Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL) is coordinating the first ever Global Donut Day in celebration of the application of the Doughnut Economics model to bring about positive impact across the globe. From Melbourne to Brazil, local Doughnut Economics festivals will connect communities to inspire a vision of a future in which all are enabled to thrive.
Kate Raworth’s Doughnut Economics model seeks to bring all people into a safe and just space whilst respecting Earth’s planetary boundaries. Doughnut Economics envisages businesses and communities which regenerate the environment and their local area and share the value they create.
The University of Exeter is proud to be taking part in Global Donut Day, with a series of events across its Penryn campus in Cornwall any beyond, which seek to bring together students, businesses and the wider community to learn, collaborate, inspire and ultimately act as a catalyst for positive change.
The festival will include three sessions, with content provided by Kate Raworth and the worldwide DEAL community, as well as by local Doughnut enthusiasts and trailblazers:
1. Doughnut Economics: a student perspective (Penryn Campus)
2. Doing business in the Doughnut (Penryn Campus)
3. Applying the Doughnut at a community level (Pendennis Community Centre)
You are welcome to join us at any or all of these sessions – please indicate on the registration form which sessions you plan to attend. Refreshments will be provided, so please let us know if you have any dietary requirements.
This event has been kindly funded through the ESRC Festival of Social Science.
