RSA President’s Lecture 2020

As we navigate a series of urgent global crises, how might cities and communities be empowered to respond in ways that are ecologically safe and socially just?

Doughnut Economics proposes a set of core principles for creating economies that are regenerative and distributive by design. What happens when these principles are put into practice? In her 2020 RSA President’s Lecture, Kate Raworth, author of the book, and co-founder of Doughnut Economics Action Lab, tells the story of what happens when the Doughnut meets the City, and what it takes to turn a radical idea into transformative action that is now starting to spread, spontaneously, around the world.

The event will be introduced by HRH The Princess Royal, RSA President.

The RSA’s programme of work on Regenerative Futures explores how a regenerative approach can help us navigate the complex challenges we face today and unlock ways of organising our economy and societies, to enable us to flourish alongside the planet's ecosystems for the long term.
