redefining value

sustainable development goals

The Sustainable Development Goals or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". The SDGs were set up in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and is intended to be achieved by 2030, and have been used by public and private sector organisations to identify their social and environmental impact.

doughnut economic framework

Revisiting economics by recognising that economies, societies and the rest of the living world are interdependent systems.

The Doughnut Economic book and framework by Kate Raworth invite us to rethink how our world functions and to redefine value. It helps see the big picture and recognising that the economy is embedded within, and dependent upon, society and the living world.

Doughnut Economics recognises that human behaviour can be nurtured to be cooperative and caring, just as it can be competitive and individualistic.

It also recognises that economies, societies, and the rest of the living world, are complex, interdependent systems that are best understood through the lens of systems thinking. And it calls for turning today's degenerative economies into regenerative ones, and divisive economies into far more distributive ones.
