CLES in conversation with…Kate Raworth
Delivering the doughnut – the role of community wealth building
The field of progressive local economics exists within a context of innovation in approach that is underpinned by social and environmental justice. This new series of webinars from CLES is designed to explore the intersections between our work on community wealth building (and other practically rooted approaches) and the work of other thinkers in the field.
For the final of our three conversations, we will be joined by Kate Raworth to discuss the intersections between her work on “doughnut economics” and community wealth building approaches.
Kate is a renegade economist focused on making economics fit for 21st century realities. She is the creator of the Doughnut of social and planetary boundaries, and co-founder of Doughnut Economics Action Lab. She is a Senior Associate at Oxford University’s Environmental Change Institute and Professor of Practice at Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. She is a member of the Club of Rome, currently serves on the World Health Organisation Council on the Economics of Health for All and has written extensively for media. The Guardian has named her as “one of the top ten tweeters on economic transformation”.
This event will take place online, is free of charge and joining instructions will be sent in the week commencing each session.
