Doughnuts for health

I'm a little late to the party but am just in the middle of reading Kate Raworth's Doughnut Economics (thanks for the tip Matthias Bruene!) - and then this pops up in The Guardian today. Lots of food for thought about how we might apply these principles locally in communities and how we might use some of Kate's thinking when addressing health inequalities and the wider social determinants of health in order to improve outcomes for all.

I am interested in the fact that her ideas feature "no immediate answers for what to do next nor specific policy presumptions or institutional fixes." There are an absence of solutions as solutions can let the rest of us off the hook but she posits a call for conversations about how we might work together on something more transformative and inclusive than our current economic model which doesn't work for so many individuals, communities and the planet
