Day of Sustainability 2020

The theme for this year’s Day of Sustainability is Kate Raworth’s Doughnut Economy. An exciting new model from the Oxford University economist that encapsulates the central challenge of the 21st century: to meet the needs of all within the means of the planet.

This will be an online symposium on the Day of Sustainability (note: it’s on a Saturday!). After a keynote presentation from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, there will be 6 parallel lectures to choose from, followed by 5 parallel workshops. Each of these will address one or more aspects of the Doughnut model.

The symposium will take place online via ZOOM. The Link will be sent to the registered participants ONLY upon completion of the form.
