How the donut helps us to imagine a Planet B
Waag is embarking on an expedition to planet B: a metaphor for exploring the social, ecological and technological structures we need in order to create a world that is open, fair and inclusive. Metaphors help us imagine situations that do not exist yet and are intangible. This year, Waag is researching how our economy works and what would happen if we would just change the rules of the game. A metaphor close to our mission is the one by Kate Raworth: the donut economy.
