Welcome to the DEAL Community Platform

Here you’ll meet pioneering changemakers who are turning Doughnut Economics from a radical idea into transformative action. It’s a place to connect, share, inspire and get inspired. Do join us.

What you'll find

On the DEAL Community Platform you’ll find lots of open-access and free to use tools and stories, created both by the DEAL team and by members of the DEAL Community, to equip and inspire community members - from teachers, facilitators and activists to policymakers and entrepreneurs.

Tools engage people in exploring the ideas at the heart of Doughnut Economics and how to turn them into action. Rather than proposing specific policies and institutions, they offer exploratory workshops, activities, lesson plans and methodologies that can be applied in many different places and settings, be it a classroom or boardroom, community hall or city hall. Find out more.

Stories are examples and case studies of Doughnut Economics being put into action in specific places and contexts, for example through an event, strategy, project, initiative or policy. Find out more.

You'll also find events to attend, news items to read and members to connect to.

Events include those created by the DEAL Community, relating to Doughnut Economics, that you can attend. You can also create your own events and invite other members of the DEAL Community. Post an event.

News & Updates where you can keep up-to-date with all the latest news from the DEAL Team. Check out the latest news and updates.

Members of the community from around the world for you to connect with. When you create your own profile you can also add tools and stories to your toolbox, and you can connect with other members who share similar interests. Connect with other members.

If you have any questions about the platform or the community you can also contact us.

The invitation

We've created this platform within the spirit of a healthy living system; that is, to experiment, learn, adapt and evolve. What you see here is the start of this process. And we hope that you will join us in this process to help shape the development of the platform as we learn what it is to best serve the needs of the community.

The tools and stories on the platform have been created both by the DEAL Team and by members of the DEAL Community. They are open-access and free to use, and we invite you to draw on them and to create and add your own. All we ask in return, is that you:

  • Use the tools and stories with integrity by following the Licensing Rules along with the Doughnut Principles of Practice.
  • Share back your experience and learning (by leaving a comment under the tool or story), along with any adaptations or innovations you have made, and any stories of putting Doughnut Economics in action that you have, to offer inspiration for others.

So have a look around and see what’s on offer, join the community and connect with other members, and together we’ll turn Doughnut Economics from a radical idea into transformative action.
