What People Said

“As a team, we’ve been wanting to bring the Doughnut to the city for years and Global Donut Day was just the push we needed to get started.” - Alexandra Anghel, Cluj Sustainable, Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

“Global Donut Day was great. We loved it, as it helped us a lot. We will now make a project on rainwater harvesting with the community and with the school of design that resulted from a workshop we organized in the GDD. So it was very very useful!” Eva Valencia-Lenero, Tricolour Coalition, Mexico City, Mexico

“It was really powerful, being able to connect with people globally around our work and around a much bigger story of economic transformation.” - Catriona Rawsthorne, CIVIC SQUARE, Birmingham, UK

Who Can Organise Events for Global Donut Days 2024

As with last year, any local group, network or organisation following the DEAL Principles and Guidelines can organise events for Global Donut Days. This year, we also welcome local governments that are working with Doughnut Economics to organise events, as well.
