Creating City Portraits - A methodological guide from the Thriving Cities Initiative

'Creating City Portraits' is the methodology for downscaling Kate Raworth's Doughnut to the city. The tool provides a holistic snapshot of the city and its impact through four lenses – social, ecological, local, and global – which together provide a new perspective on what it means for a city to thrive. It appreciates what makes the city unique, while understanding its global influence and responsibility.

The Creating City Portraits guide is based on experience of applying the methodology with pilot cities in the Thriving Cities Initiative - Philadelphia, Portland and Amsterdam. Having received a huge level of interest in the City Portrait methodology to ‘downscale the Doughnut’ since the publication of the Amsterdam City Doughnut, the Thriving Cities Initiative is publishing this guide with the intention to make it as simple as possible for others to use and adapt.

Learn more about how the Doughnut can be turned into a tool for transformative action in this 12 minute introductory with Kate Raworth.
