The Doughnut economy model offers a new way of thinking about the core principles of our economy and society. It focuses on defining a safe and just space for everyone on this planet – in contrast to decadence for some and deprivation for many. This principle is appealing to many creatives, especially those who care about people and the planet, but the way the model has been expressed up to now was quite abstract. How to apply this way of thinking, and doing, to our professional, creative practice and our everyday lives?

This is what the Doughnut Economy Lab aimed to do. It was not ‘a lecture on Doughnut economics’, nor was it ‘a jam session to come up with creative solutions’. Rather, it was a collaborative R&D session for creatives to jointly try to get their heads around this new way of thinking, taking inspiration from the Doughnut economy model.
