Building thriving cities fit for the 21st century

We need alternative ways of economic thinking to solve our current challenges. Is it possible to include both people’s wellbeing and planetary boundaries whilst striving for a thriving economy? Kate Raworth, the author of Doughnut Economics: 7 ways to think like a 21st-century economist, will be joining us to discuss the framework's role in shaping circular economy policies and business practices at city level. From Europe to Costa Rica, countries and cities around the world are reaching out to align their development strategies with it. To demonstrate, we will draw upon insights from Amsterdam, a city that recently implemented and published their Doughnut City Portrait during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is a UK charity working on business, learning, insights & analysis, and communications to accelerate the transition towards the circular economy.
