Join us Monday 21st - Sunday 27th February 2022 to get out in the field and use your creativity to explore how we take on the curious, playful role of neighbourhood scientists in our places, discovering together how we can use our superpowers to defend the planetary boundaries.

“Regeneration can only begin when we understand the life and connections of our own place.”

—Damon Gameau

Throughout this first year of co-creating how we move our neighbourhood into the safe and just space of the doughnut, we continue to learn about the practices that help us to bring the ideas to life together in our places.

The doughnut consists of two concentric rings: a social foundation, to ensure that no one is left falling short on life’s essentials, and an ecological ceiling, to ensure that humanity does not collectively overshoot the planetary boundaries that protect Earth's life-supporting systems. Between these two sets of boundaries lies a doughnut-shaped space that is both ****ecologically safe and socially just: a space in which we can all thrive.


“Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses – especially learn how to see. Realise that everything connects to everything else.”

— Leonardo da Vinci

In this third co-creation week, we are hoping to explore a number of key enquiries questions and begin our neighbourhood fieldwork together:

+ How do we understand, play with and bring huge concepts like the planetary boundaries to life?

Janine Benyus talks about the power of learning from what nature teaches can teach us in problem solving, so:

+ How might biomimicry practices help us to learn more practically from nature?

*“Science can be a way of forming intimacy and respect with other species that is rivalled ***only by the observations of traditional knowledge holders.”
