Today marks a new beginning for the circular future of Amsterdam: We are excited to launch the long-awaited Amsterdam City Doughnut! For over a year, we have been working closely with our friends at Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL), C40 Cities and Biomimicry 3.8 to turn the global concept of Kate Raworth's Doughnut into a tool for transformative action in the city of Amsterdam.
As a pioneering work in its field, the Amsterdam City Doughnut embraces a social and ecological perspective, while combining local aspiration with global responsibility. How can our city be a home to thriving people in a thriving place, while respecting the wellbeing of all people and the health of the planet?
While the streets of Amsterdam have become unusually quiet these days, the tool offers an opportunity to reimagine and remake our future in the city. It is at the core of the city's broader ambitions for becoming circular, the Amsterdam Circular Strategy 2020-2025. The new strategy is the culmination of a collaborative process with the Gemeente Amsterdam to co-create circular strategies for construction, consumer goods and food.
