Doughnut Economics and Why it Matters to Cambridge
September 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
How can we create a more socially and ecologically just Cambridge?
Kate Raworth spoke at the Imagine 2027 conference in Cambridge in January 2018 explaining her concept of Doughnut Economics which includes a detailed accounting system for measuring progress towards a more sustainable relationship with the planet, and a fairer society. More than that, it puts the structure of the economy in a central role for the required transformations, and describes the types of changes we will need in the social contract: e.g. the Commons has an important role in changing the nature of ownership and power.
Cambridge Doughnut Economics Action Group (CamDEAG) aims to spread the Doughnut vision within the Cambridge community, to influence strategic policy especially within the City and County Councils, and to work with change-makers at grassroots level.
Geraint Davies (”G”) from CamDEAG will explain the principles of Doughnut Economics, give examples of how they can be applied at City level, and also touch on what more might need to be worked out before we have an operating system suitable for a new and sustainable society.
‘G’ Joined CamDEAG a year ago, helping to shape strategy. He is a physicist, an Innovation consultant since 1986, and Co-Founder and Director of Innovia Technology in Cambridge working for global clients.
