Kate Raworth’s Doughnut Economics aims to revise our economic thinking to meet the challenges of the 21st century. How might we meet the needs of all within the means of the planet? Doughnut Economics seeks to break our addiction to growth; redesign money, finance, and business to be in service to people; and create economies that are regenerative and distributive by design.

London Undergrowth is a peer-learning group based in Finsbury Park. Over six months, the group is aiming to explore the ideas of Doughnut Economics at the scale of the neighbourhood, street and household.

In this introductory workshop, members of the London Undergrowth peer group will share an introduction to Doughnut Economics and their own enquiries. No previous knowledge of Doughnut Economics is required – just turn up with an open mind!

Workshop facilitators:

John Ridpath

John is hosting the London Undergrowth learning journey. He is an independent technology consultant, writer and educator. John works with startups, businesses and government to ensure that digital products and services are meeting the needs of wider society.

Nicky Dunlop

Nicky Dunlop is a consultant, project manager, facilitator and entrepreneur with a focus on projects and organisations that aim beyond profit and deliver outcomes that improve our communities and planet. Her interest in thinking “circular, not linear” and wanting to positively impact her local community brought her to join the Doughnut Economics Neighbourhood peer group, where she hopes to improve connection and agency in her local neighbourhood, creating a regenerative culture of community sharing and restful green spaces.

She is driven to build communities where people feel more empowered, aligned to their values, and ultimately take positive action in the issues they care about. This brought her to co-found ActionAble – a social enterprise activating and empowering a wave of change makers through cohort-based coaching, practical courses, and interactive events.

Nicky previously worked for 10 years in sales and operational strategy in leadership roles in the retail and corporate travel industry, before transitioning to a more purpose-driven career via On Purpose, an impact leadership programme.
