Podcast Party – This Idea Will Save the World
March 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The Marie Forleo Podcast – This Idea Will Save the World – Kate Raworth on ‘Doughnut Economics’
This renegade economist just redrew the picture of economic success — and it’s saving the planet. Kate Raworth’s internationally best-selling book, “Doughnut Economics,” has influenced audiences from the UN General Assembly to Pope Francis, to the Extinction Rebellion. But don’t let the word “economics” scare you away. Doughnut economics is simple, profound and can start at home. For hundreds of years western economics has touted “growth equals progress!” That assumption isn’t just wrong — it’s dangerous. The doughnut puts a new goal at the center. An economic system that focuses on human thriving without depleting or destroying the earth that sustains us.
After the podcast, we will have a systems thinking activity.
Snacks will be provided by the PNW Food Systems Initiatives.
