Version 1.0 (September 2020)
This activity is based on the question ‘Can humanity get into the Doughnut by 2050?’, with four different answers represented in the picture. Participants are invited to ‘take a stand’ and go to the corner of the room that best represents their view, then share their thoughts with others, write them down collectively, then go to another corner and reflect on and respond to what they see. Thoughts and responses are recorded on large sheets of paper and then put on walls to create a gallery of ‘Doughnut debates’. The activity ends with a period of reflection, inviting participants to notice how their view has changed or not, based on what they’ve seen and heard from others.
