Event description

Description

As the We Make the City festival approaches in June, Waag is organising five design workshops investigating the relationship between 'Doughnut Economics' by Kate Raworth and technological innovations within the 'fair, open & inclusive' values ​​of Waag.

During these open sessions we start from Doughnut Economic to develop a 'doughnut & tech canvas', while we discover which other topics should be on the agenda.

Doughnut and social platforms

Each session starts from a different question through which we explore what Doughnut economics means for innovation and technology. This evening we will explore the role of social platforms within the Doughnut economy.

With 'Donut Economics' Kate Raworth provided us with a beautiful graphic overview summarising our social and ecological goals. Waag and the Hogeschool van Amsterdam invite designers, developers, system thinkers and active citizens to participate in designing an interactive version of Raworth's image for the city of Amsterdam. These workshops follow up on a previous design workshop with Kate Raworth that took place last January at Waag.

About Doughnut Economics by Kate Raworth

Kate Raworth has created a framework for the 21st century with her 'Doughnut Economy'. Does our economic behaviour only promote growth and profit or does it serve the needs of humanity and our planet? With this question in mind, Kate Raworth, an economist and researcher at the 'Environmental Change Institute' in Oxford, set out to create a new economic framework. Instead of the traditional image of rising lines and towering graphs, another vision emerged: our economy should look more like a doughnut. The doughnut represents a new circular economy in which our economic activities grow within boundaries: an ideal circle.
