Building Doughnut Icons Together #2 (Past)

Identify universal images for social and ecological dimensions of the doughnut to create icons

In the words of Kate Raworth, "The most powerful stories throughout history have been the ones told with pictures."

In this second of two workshops (first held 6 March), we will identify universal images for each of the social and ecological dimensions of the doughnut. These images, together with a brief, will be handed to a local artist to develop copyright-free icons for all to use.

Don't worry if you didn't make the last one, as we will have new dimensions and new discussions!

How will the icons be used?
The sky's the limit! In Cambridge, UK, we plan to paint the co-created icons onto a 2-metre-wide doughnut installation (and its digital twin) to be used throughout 2021 at various outreach/public engagement events to facilitate data collection, visioning, story-telling, art creation, and more.

Workshop agenda
  • Doughnut framework: What's it all about?
  • Set evaluation criteria
  • Create and evaluate icon concepts (small breakout groups)
  • Present icon concepts back to the full group

Crowdfunding this work
The Cambridge Doughnut Economics Action Group (CamDEAG) plans to commission a local artist to convert your concepts into copyright-free icons. We've created a crowd-funding page to raise funds for this work. If you'd like to donate, please visit:
