Email a few days beforehand for the the online invite.

For October, 2022 we’re re-reading the first four chapters of  Doughnut Economics – 7 Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist, by Kate Raworth.  Order it via her website here.  For November, we will be re-reading the remaining chapters.

‘Humanity’s 21st century challenge is to meet the needs of all within the means of the planet. In other words, to ensure that no one falls short on life’s essentials (from food and housing to healthcare and political voice), while ensuring that collectively we do not overshoot our pressure on Earth’s life-supporting systems, on which we fundamentally depend – such as a stable climate, fertile soils, and a protective ozone layer. The Doughnut of social and planetary boundaries is a playfully serious approach to framing that challenge, and it acts as a compass for human progress this century.
