Co-creating 10 ways to introduce the Doughnut (Past)

A 90 minute event to create 10 ways to introduce the Doughnut to people who have never heard of it before

Thanks so much to everyone who attended and participated in yesterday's workshops. Now comes the process of distilling all the insights into a tool to go onto the platform. Keep an eye on the DEAL Newsletter for its release.


This event is running twice on the same day. The zoom link will be the same for both.

8:00 - 9:30 UK time
16:00 to 17:30 UK time

Are you a teacher, facilitator, community organiser, employee, councillor, student, parent, friend, neighbour, volunteer (the list goes on…) who is occasionally, or often in a position where you want to introduce the Doughnut to people who’ve never heard of it before?
If you are, then this could be the event for you! And we, the DEAL Team, warmly invite you to join us to ideate and co-create many different ways to introduce the Doughnut for the very first time to various different audiences - in chalk, on screen, on paper, with hula hoops... we’re sure the possibilities are endless.
In the 90 minute event, we’ll discuss the various settings and audiences we want to design for, the factors to consider, then we’ll break into small groups to each design an approach. By the end of the event, we’ll hopefully have the start of multiple and diverse ways of introducing the Doughnut, each with their own qualities, means of delivery, intended audience and level of participation - yes, let’s make some of them really participative!
You don’t need any experience to join, just turn up and enjoy sharing ideas and listening to the ideas of others, and let’s see what our collective imagination can create.
We are running the event twice on the same day - 24th June - to enable people from around the world to be able to join. So to sign up, click ‘join’, then join using same zoom link at the time which best suits you - either 8am UK time or 4pm UK time.
We look forward to co-creating with you!

    The way economics is taught and practiced is detrimental to our health and well-being as well as the planet's. We can do better!

    I have read the Doughnough Economics, it was suggested to me by fellow economics students.

    I'd like to collaborate in applying the doughnut locally, using it as a tool to engage various parties on future possibilities

    There were groups working on ways to present insights to school kids. This work from Donella Meadows Project might yield insights for that work..

    Yup, I was all zoomed out today with the Rotary International ESRAG (Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group) annual meeting with a focus on combating Climate Change, Biodiversity Loss and leading the transition to Circular Economics for our 1.5 million members and affiliates worldwide. I am eager to foster a connection between DEAL and Rotary as a part of my critical objectives for Boston Greenfest this August 20-22 on the Greenway on the waterfront in Boston. Sorry I missed the event, although I was obviously working on a significant related activity.

    Being on Pacific Daylight time, I think I'm too late to join the fun, but I'd definitely like to see the "co-creations" you come up with.
    (Aside: it might be worth having a time zone "widget" on the site that would make it easy for DEAL users to relate their time to UTC and others.)

    Hello! 👋 I am super interested in this event, but unfortunately cannot make either of the two sessions tomorrow. Will one or both of the sessions perhaps be recorded and shared? I realise that it's an interactive event with group divisions etc. so if even just a part of the sessions can be recorded and shared I would be very grateful. If not, I'll keep my eyes peeled for hopefully a following similar session 😀 Thank you, Zanri

    Hi Zanri, whilst the events won't be recorded, the discussions from the event will be captured in a collaborative document and I will write up the event as a story so you can see how it ran.

    Look forward! In Amsterdam we are continuing the use of metaphor and co-creating a Donut Bakery - within insights derived from the Doughnart! event.

    Hi - I tried to register for the later event (4 - 5:30 UK time), but I can only get the earlier event to show as an option. How do I book in for the later time? I am in Toronto Canada, so the earlier event is impractical. Thanks.

    Hmmm. I'm thinking that this is not a pre-register event - but rather a drop-in event. If that is the case, then I have the zoom url and I know when it will take place - and it's in my calendar.

    Hi Douglas, that's right. You can use the zoom url for either time, and it's just a case of showing up to the time that suits you best. Looking forward to seeing you at the second of the two events!
