The Amsterdam City Doughnut: A Tool for Transformative Action

April 8, 2020

The Amsterdam City Doughnut takes the global concept of the Doughnut, developed by Kate Raworth, and turns it into a tool for transformative action in the city of Amsterdam.

It marks the first public presentation of the holistic approach to ‘downscaling the Doughnut’, combining local aspiration with global responsibility. How can our city be a thriving home to thriving people, while respecting the planetary boundaries?

The Amsterdam City Doughnut has been developed in collaboration between Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL), Circle Economy, Biomimicry 3.8 and C40 over the course of one year. It is at the core of the City of Amsterdam’s broader ambitions for becoming a circular city, the Amsterdam Circular Strategy 2020-2025.

(The full Amsterdam Circular Strategy 2020/2025 is available for download on the website of the City of Amsterdam.)
