Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL)

There is now a growing, worldwide community of people and groups advancing the ideas behind Doughnut Economics.

Groups across the UK are building new Doughnut initiatives in their communities, from Cambridge to Leeds, Otley, Devon, Cornwall, Pontypridd, Middlesborough and London.

And across the world, there are groups in Amsterdam, Barbados, Berlin, Brussels, Barcelona, California, Israel, Melbourne, and Sydney.

The DEAL platform is a great place to learn about the stories being created and the tools being developed – and a chance to just revel in the positivity and energy that is evident across the globe!
