Book clubs and study groups are a great way to get to know the ideas of Doughnut Economics and discuss them with other people to think about how they could be applied to your place and your community.
A number of groups from around the world have already held book clubs and study groups on Doughnut Economics: seven ways to think like a 21st century economist to deepen their knowledge of the ideas and discuss how they can be put into practice.
So we thought, wouldn't it be great if we created an event to draw on this experience of what makes a good Doughnut Economics book club or study group, as well as inviting the ideas of the DEAL Community, to create a Book Club Guide (as a tool on the platform) for anyone who'd like to start a book club of their own?
This 90 minute event will be held on zoom (link above) and will invite your examples of what's worked as well as explore ideas of what might not yet have been tried. There will no doubt be lots of ways to hold a great book club or study group (which is great!), so we'll aim to capture and develop some of these to go in the guide.
So do express your interest by clicking 'Join' in the event page above, share the event with others who might be interested, share any ideas you might have in the comments below, and join us on 22nd April (@ 7pm BST / 8pm CEST) via the zoom link above.
No matter who you are (some cats have even been known to take an interest), or where you are (whether you're on a beach or in a snowy woodland), we look forward to co-creating with you!
