Our first anniversary and April events
Doughnut Economics meets the Bento, a new data roundtable, and more
This April marks the one year anniversary of the first Weekly Bento (here’s the video of the first one), and the birth of the Bento Society as a living, breathing thing.
A lot has happened in the year since: hundreds of events, thousands of attendees, and a global community that did not exist a year ago.
What stands out to me a year later are how many major life changes people have made. I’ve seen so many people change careers, have major leaps in personal growth, or commit themselves to their dreams, with the Bento or the Bento community being some part of why. This is an inspiring and contagious group of people.
Here’s what’s happening at the Bento Society this month.
This Friday, April 9, the Bento Society is hosting Collaboration Club. We’ll experiment with combining Bentoism and Doughnut Economics. If you’re unfamiliar with Doughnut Economics, check out my Ideaspace interview with its creator, the Oxford economist Kate Raworth. During the session we’ll brainstorm and co-create together. RSVP here to join, and please do the reading/listening ahead of time.
On Friday, April 23rd, the Bento Society is hosting a roundtable discussion on “What gets measured and what doesn’t get measured.” Like our previous roundtable on What to measure and what not to measure, this is for people who have experience in or are interested in going deeper into questions of value and measurement. RSVP here to join.
Finally, here’s a video of last week’s Quarterly Bento. To check in and make progress on your goals for 2021, watch and follow along:
Peace and love my friends,
The Bento Society
