Introducing Doughnut Economics for Taos New Mexico

Simple slide presentation aimed at introducing our community to the concepts and principles of Doughnut Economics


There are many entities in Taos County practicing regenerative and distributive components outlined in Kate Raworth’s  Seven ways to some degree or another. There are others who are almost exclusively focused on extractive and divisive models of growth 

This tool is a simple PowerPoint presentation aimed at introducing our community or any community to the concepts and principles of Doughnut Economics, and the framework it provides for bringing us together. Our goal is to generate awareness, interest and motivation leading to action, with the understanding  that achieving a livable future is a real possibility.


Why use it?

First Steps: 
-Introduce Taos County to the concepts and principles of Doughnut Economics

-Generate interest among entities to dig deeper

-Motivate entities to act as leaders in a Taos County transition to a regenerative, distributive, resilient, just, and livable future.

Who is it for?

Taos County or other community's businesses, non profits, policymakers, entrepreneurs, teachers, individuals, consultants


How long does it take?

This is very flexible. We have created this simple PowerPoint style introduction with the goal of being able to adapt it to the many different scenarios that exist within our diverse community or any community.

Initially, we plan to engage entities on an individual basis before sending them this read through version.

The read through could take differing amounts of time. A ZOOM or in person presentation could take from 20 min. to an hour, maybe more depending on the level of interest we generate for Q&A!

How many people is it for?

This is for anywhere from one to one hundred!

What materials do you need?

Attendees will need:

Internet and ZOOM access, if applicable

Up to an hour

An open mind!

Presenter will need:


-ZOOM account


-Projector and screen (if in person)
-Other materials where applicable ie no electronics available such as whiteboard, sticky notes, printed material etc.

What does the facilitator need to know or be able to do

Facilitator needs to have a very good understanding of the concepts of circularity as laid out in Kate Raworth's book, "Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist" and other sources, understand how circularity differs from 20th century linear economics, have a grasp of the dynamics of its community, and an open mind!
