Watch it back - Can Ireland Thrive Within the Doughnut?

As part of our ongoing Greening Our City webinar series, we welcomed the public to join us at Environ 2021, the 31st Irish Environmental Researchers Colloquium for a co-keynote talk from Kate Raworth (author of Doughnut Economics), environmental economist focused on exploring the economic mindset needed to address the 21st  century's social and ecological challenges, and Roisin Markham, founder and network steward of the Irish Doughnut Economics Network (IDEN).

Chaired by ERI’s Dr Ger Mullally, lecturer and Deputy Head in the Department of Sociology and Criminology in the School of Society, Politics and Ethics, Kate and Roisin provided an overview of the Doughnut Economics model and discussed how this could be applied in an Irish context.
