Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL) is part of the emerging global movement of new economic thinking and doing. Our aim is to help create 21st century economies that are regenerative and distributive by design, so that they can meet the needs of all people within the means of the living planet. We call this Doughnut Economics.
We work with changemakers worldwide – in communities, education, cities and places, business and government and more – who are turning the ideas of Doughnut Economics into transformative action and aiming to bring about systemic change.
Our name is very intentional: we are focused on action and always learning through experiment.
DEAL was founded as a Community Interest Company in July 2019, and we launched our Community Platform online in September 2020.
