Doughnut Economics

Irish Doughnut Action Network IDEN are looking forward to hosting a learning journey with Kerry PPN exploring the four lenses of doughnut economics.

In the workshop, we will work together to explore the four key questions that unlock what it might mean to live within planetary boundaries and a safe just place for humanity in your place, the county of Kerry. (Planetary boundaries are the earth’s environmental limits and the safe just space is linked to the UN Sustainability Development Goals).

(Planetary boundaries is a concept involving Earth system processes that contain environmental boundaries.

The framework is based on scientific evidence that human actions since the Industrial Revolution have become the main driver of global environmental change).

By looking through the four lenses on life, we see the whole picture and surface the connections.

This allows us to have a systems view, create stories of possibilities and explore areas with the most potential for action.

We hope you will join us in a sense of curious adventure as we co-create this work together. 

This workshop is a 1.5 hour introduction exploring:

“How can we meet the needs of all that is Kerry within the means of the living planet?”

Tuesday 7 December from 19:30 – 21:00

No prior familiarity with Doughnut Economics
