A series of four lectures covering the fundamentals of Doughnut Economics, hosted by Ubiquity University
How can our city be a home to
thriving people, in a thriving place,
whilst respecting the wellbeing of all people,
and the health of the whole planet?
When a city asks itself this very 21st century question, the result is a holistic snapshot of the city's performance across four crucial ‘lenses’ that arise from combining two domains (social and ecological) and two scales (local and global). Each of these interconnected lenses focuses on a part of the overarching question at the core of the City Portrait. Together, they combine local aspirations – to be thriving people in a thriving place – with global responsibility – both social and ecological – that requires every place to consider its many complex interconnections with the world in which it is embedded.
Turning Doughnut Economics from a radical idea into transformative action
Moving from a linear to a circular economy means minimising the waste and pollution by reducing, recycling and reusing. The City of Amsterdam aims to redesign twenty product- or material chains.
