Introducing Regenerative and Distributive Design

Version 1.0 (February 2022)
 

Overview

 
Getting into the Doughnut calls for economies that are both regenerative and distributive by design. In this tool Kate Raworth introduces the core concepts behind the transformations that are needed to bring about these two design dynamics:
  • from economies that are degenerative to ones that are regenerative by design
  • from economies that are deeply divisive to ones that are distributive by design.

Regenerative and distributive design form two of the seven ways to think like a 21st century economist that you can read about in full here in the introduction to Doughnut Economics, and here in a series of 90-second animations.
 

Who is it for?

 
These videos are for anyone looking to quickly understand these design dynamics at the heart of Doughnut Economics. They can also be used in lessons, in workshops and in other settings where you want to introduce these ideas to your audience in a quick, easy and engaging way.

Introducing Regenerative Design


This 3-minute video goes further into introducing regenerative design, presenting the two nutrient loops - biological and technical - and asks how can we mimic nature's genius and design in order to live with and within the cycles of the living world?

Introducing Distributive Design


This 3-minute video goes further into introducing distributive design by asking who owns the sources of wealth creation - such as land, housing, and business - and how can we design economies where value and opportunity is shared far more equitably with all those who co-create it, meaning everyone in society?

    Watching these videos made me think about my own city. I began to think about housing distribution, about businesses here that are employee-owned and those that extract wealth. I think, perhaps, that some information about how some of things actually play out in real life scenarios will help regular people connect with these concepts and their conclusions. We must make these concepts personal to foster change, I think.
