Planet Cheltenham coordinates a Doughnut Economics group. Are you curious to find out more?

What is Doughnut Economics?

The Doughnut offers a vision of what it means for humanity to thrive in the 21st century – and Doughnut Economics explores the mindset and ways of thinking needed to get us there.

First published in 2012 in an Oxfam report by Kate Raworth, the concept of the Doughnut rapidly gained traction internationally, from the Pope and the UN General Assembly to Extinction Rebellion.

Kate’s 2017 book, Doughnut Economics: seven ways to think like a 21st century economist,  further explored the economic thinking needed to bring humanity into the Doughnut, drawing together insights from diverse economic perspectives in a way that everyone can understand.

Doughnut Economics Showcase

At the moment there are 10 residents in a peer to peer learning journey lasting 8 months. The group have been involved in showcase events in Birmingham and at The Wilson.
