Catalyzing Sustainability - business models for the 21st century

How do we address 21st century challenges such as the climate crisis and inequality? Join this workshop to learn more about economist Kate Raworth’s framework Doughnut Economics, and get hands on with group activities, case work and discussions.

Anna Carlsen, Extinction Rebellion activist and board member of Rethinking Economics Norway, will speak about the Doughnut and how it represents a paradigm shift in modern economics, swapping the idea of endless growth for regenerative and distributive thinking.

The Doughnut is a way of looking at everything we do in our communities and making sure we leave no-one out, and don’t bustour planetary boundaries (eg the limits on the damage we can cause to our climate, our air, our water, our food systems, our seas, and our soil). It’s a way of thinking about what we do, to consider all those impacts, and we can use it to look at a business, a project, a community, or an idea.
