Co-creating methods to downscale the Doughnut: Share your thoughts! (Past)

Webinar to share progress adapting the Doughnut Portrait, and to invite contributions from the DEAL Community (Asia)

At Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL), we’ve been hosting a co-creative process over the past months to adapt the ‘Doughnut Portrait’ methodology so that it is relevant and useful to global South priorities and interests. In parallel, we've also been listening to, and learning from, the diverse initiatives in global North cities and regions that are innovating with the Portrait methodology so that it fits their unique contexts.

Now, we'd like to share our progress and learnings with members of the DEAL Community, and invite you to make additional contributions.

Please do join us for an online webinar on July 29 @ 08:30 – 10:30 (British Summer Time / GMT+1) that brings together people with a shared interest in translating the global Doughnut to many smaller scales, from neighbourhoods to nations, in both the global North and global South.

Note that this webinar is being held at a time that is more friendly to members of the DEAL Community across Asia / Oceania -- there is a separate webinar at a time more friendly to members across the Americas. That said, you are welcome to attend whichever webinar you prefer (or both!).

The webinar will be hosted by the DEAL Team and we will be joined by representatives from initiatives applying their own distinct approach to bringing the 'Doughnut Portrait’ tool to life in the context of their own cities and regions. After setting the scene, we will invite participants to form smaller groups in breakout sessions to discuss and share additional contributions.

We also plan to launch a consultation period for members to share contributions after this brief webinar, using online collaborative documents (e.g. Google Docs). Based on the contributions incorporated throughout these co-creative phases, we're aiming to publish a practitioner's handbook in the Fall. 

We're excited to host this space for members of the DEAL Community to learn from the work of others, take inspiration from their diverse approaches, share your experiences, and to feel even better equipped to put  Doughnut-thinking into practice in your own contexts. We do hope you can join us.
