On 13 November 2023, Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL) will be launching Global Donut Day, to be held online and in-person across the globe.  Global Donut Day is a day of local, community-led festivals centred around Doughnut Economics, which offers a vision of what it means for humanity to thrive in the 21st century.

A unifying day of local action and global connection, the event will showcase keynote speakers such as Doughnut Economics author Kate Raworth, sessions with members of DEAL, and opportunities for international connection.      

In places from Melbourne to Mexico City and Beijing to Brazil, participation in Global Donut Day offers a moment to bring communities together around Doughnut Economics, to learn, make visible, connect, celebrate, imagine and inspire. 

Doughnut Economics proposes an economic mindset that's fit for our times. It's not a set of policies and institutions, but rather a way of thinking to bring about the regenerative and distributive dynamics that this century calls for. 

Drawing on insights from diverse schools of economic thought - including ecological, feminist, institutional, behavioural and complexity economics - it sets out seven ways to think like a 21st century economist to transform economies, local to global.

“Doughnut Economics is proving to be an idea that connects people - from communities to education, business, local government and more. We’re excited to see how Global Donut Day can be a moment to celebrate this connection and provide an opportunity to learn from one another, both within our localities and from others around the world.” - Rob Shorter, Communities & Art Lead, DEAL
