Event details

Unforeseen financial crises. Extreme wealth inequality. Relentless pressure on the environment. Can we go on like this? Is there an alternative?

Economist Kate Raworth, author of the internationally acclaimed Doughnut Economics, offers a radical re-envisioning of the system that has brought us to the point of ruin. She is joined in conversation by Miatta Fahnbulleh, Chief Executive of the New Economics Foundation, who has a wealth of experience in developing and delivering policy to empower communities and change people’s lives.

Discover how we can bring humanity into a sweet spot that meets the needs of all within the means of the planet.

Our event will begin with an introduction by Danielle Walker Palmour, Director of the Friends Provident Foundation. Under her leadership, the Foundation has built an international reputation for innovative funding and investment practice and is at the forefront of rethinking the role of philanthropic resources in the UK.

Presented in collaboration with the Friends Provident Foundation

 This event is hosted live on Zoom Webinar. You’ll receive a link to join a couple of days before the event takes place and a reminder an hour before. During the event, you can ask questions via a Q&A function but audience cameras and microphones will remain muted throughout.

Exploring Doughnut Economics is part of a series of events presented under the theme of ‘Levelling Up the Economy’ with the support of the Friends Provident Foundation. You may also enjoy Levelling Up the Economy on Wednesday 16 June and Green Growth and Community Wealth Creation on Thursday 17 June.
