Global Donut Day is an international event co-ordinated by DEAL, the Donut Economics Action Lab. The University of Exeter is delighted to be a part of this movement, and to contribute to the growing enthusiasm for and understanding of the potential for Doughnut Economics to transform Cornwall.
Global Donut Day will take place across the whole of Monday 13 November, in both the university campus and the Falmouth community. During the day, the event will be split into three parts, focusing on students and the university (morning/lunch), Cornish business and enterprise (afternoon), and local community action (early evening). In between workshops, there will be live video link-ups with Doughnut Economics initiatives around the world, and online talks from Kate Raworth, the author of Doughnut Economics, and more.
Each workshop will focus on sharing the latest information about Doughnut Economics, including good practice for its application, and exploring the potential for Cornwall.
Dr Ruth Cherringtion, Lecturer in Sustainable Futures at the University of Exeter.
The event will engage with individuals from businesses and enterprises to students and communities, bringing us to a better understanding of the potential for the University of Exeter to demonstrate academic and local leadership in this key international development.
