    On Growth and 'Enough': Kate Raworth & Sister True D

    Season 3 of Who Cares Wins offers a triptych of episodes that all explore how our inner landscapes shape our outer landscapes.

    In episode one, Lily speaks with pioneering economist Kate Raworth and Sister True Dedication. Kate is the author and creator of Doughnut Economics: an economic model that balances between essential human needs and planetary boundaries. Sister True D is a Zen Buddhist nun ordained by Vietnamese peace activist and monastic Thich Nhat Hanh (known affectionately by students as 'Thay'). Sister True D is a former journalist, Cambridge graduate and edited several of Thich Nhat Hanh's books including 'Zen and the Art of Saving the Planet.'

    In this episode, Kate, Sister True D and Lily discuss the nature of humanity, the nature of reality, and how Zen concepts such as Inter-Being might be applied to the cultural assumptions that lie underneath our economic and political realities.

What we need now

It’s incredible how timely Lily’s book and this podcast are. We’ve been approaching this state of crisis (paired with heightened social and technological evolution) for a while, but the current pandemic urges we as both society and individuals to carefully think about our role in this planet. Lily’s thoughtful interviews bring many aspects we can consider to come to our own conclusions - or further questions to keep the conversation going.
