Erinch Sahan Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL)
Transforming business and manufacturing through Doughnut Economics
Doughnut Economics is a compass for human prosperity in the 21st century. It highlights the transformations needed if we are to meet the needs of all people within the means of the living planet. For researchers who are shaping the future of manufacturing, the Doughnut helps identify the social and ecological challenges that we all need to address. Critically, it shows that we need a business world that applies research in a way that pursues bold and ambitious solutions that are both regenerative and distributive. To make this possible, we will need to transform the deep design of business: its purpose and networks, how it is governed and owned and the nature of its relationship with finance. This talk will explore ideas and models for achieving the needed transformations in business and manufacturing to help humanity into the Doughnut.
