Art. 1: « Le Grand Orient de Belgique, obédience masculine, maillon de la franc-maçonnerie universelle, demande à celui qui se présente à l’Initiation d’être honnête homme et d’être capable de comprendre et de propager les principes maçonniques. Il exige de ses membres, la sincérité des convictions, le désir de s’instruire et le dévouement. Il forme une société d’hommes probes et libres qui, liés par des sentiments de liberté, d’égalité et de fraternité, travaillent individuellement et en commun au progrès social, et exercent ainsi la bienveillance dans le sens le plus étendu ».
« La pensée ne doit jamais se soumettre, ni à un dogme, ni à un parti, ni à une passion, ni à un intérêt, ni à une idée préconçue, ni à quoi que ce soit, si ce n'est aux faits eux-mêmes, parce que, pour elle, se soumettre, ce serait cesser d'être. » Henri Poincaré

Kate Raworth: Creating a 21st century economy - Doughnut Economics



Today's economies are giving rise to the global 1% while running down the planet on which all of our lives depend.

How, then, should we redesign our economies so that they start to meet the needs of all within the means of the planet?

We will speak with Raworth about the concrete steps that should be undertaken by economists, policy makers, companies and consumers, to make our economies fit for the future.

Raworth presents ‘The Doughnut’ of social and planetary boundaries as a playfully serious compass for human prosperity in the 21st century, setting out the social foundation below which no one should fall, and the ecological ceiling that humanity should not exceed. If getting into the Doughnut is humanity's 21st century goal, then what kind of policies will it take to get there? According to Raworth, economic policymakers should drop their obsessive focus on GDP growth and instead, aim to create economies that are regenerative and distributive by design. But what will it take to make this happen and where will change begin? Join Kate in discussion on the key ways to think like a 21st century economist.
