Interactive Doughnut

I used an online graphing calculator to make a model doughnut


A simple, intuitive, interactive model for visualising how well we are staying inside the doughnut.

At this link, you will find an example of a doughnut, where you can use the sliders under the "Inner Doughnut Controls" folder to show (out of 10) how many people are struggling with:

  • food
  • health
  • education
  • income and work
  • peace and justice
  • political voice
  • social equity
  • gender equality
  • housing
  • networks
  • energy
  • water

And under the "Outer Doughnut Controls" folder, you can show how much we are exceeding our environmental ceiling (out of 10) in terms of:

  • climate change
  • ocean acidification
  • chemical pollution
  • nitrogen and phosphorus loading
  • freshwater withdrawals
  • land conservation
  • biodiversity loss
  • air pollution
  • ozone layer depletion

Please note that the default values were chosen randomly as I am yet to do any specific research to quantify these issues.


I'd love to hear any feedback you have for things I can improve on in this model, leave a comment down bellow or contact me directly at

I'm particularly interested in any quantitative relations you can find between say, education and income because I know that all these factors are linked and a major advantage of using a calculator for this model could be the ability to accurately display the effects of a change in any of these slices.

    I agree with the Doughnut vision and I want to help developing and apply this concept on the Swannoa river watershed.

    Ruby...this is amazing. It has a great potential if we do a database for different countries. Let's do it?

    That sounds amazing, I can definately make that happen if we can get some quantitive values
