Introducing the Melbourne Doughnut to the Pen – Supporting IMAGINE Peninsula 2040

June 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Times are changing and together we need to work on new ways of thinking!

Online ticketed event 3rd June, 7:30-9.00

The Melbourne Doughnut Economy model was launched in April 2021 after an extensive community collaboration process. Now it’s our turn to explore what it could mean for the Mornington Peninsula.

As part of the IMAGINE Peninsula 2040 process, we’re excited to welcome you to an intergenerational discussion where we’ll look into the future through the lens of the Doughnut. That means thinking about how we balance ‘social foundations’ like water, food and education with ‘ecological ceiling’ themes like climate change, biodiversity loss and chemical pollution. Just think Yin and Yang!

Calling local First Nations people, students and educators, volunteers and social entrepreneurs, policy-makers and change-makers, economists and naturalists, artists and musicians, academics and trades people, business owners and activists to consider:

What we love?
What we want to protect?
What we want to improve?
What we want to change?

The collective wisdom and knowledge will be gathered and shared with the Council as a way of laying the foundations for how the Doughnut can inform our region’s pathway to the future.

“A safe and just space for humanity where our regenerative and distributive wellbeing economy is a beacon for other cities, regions and nations.
A place where our visions and actions illuminate the aspirations of our network of neighbourhoods that support thriving communities and natural systems.”
