Welcome to the launch webinar of 'Doughnut Economics Toolbox' to learn and discuss how to advance ecological and social sustainability in cities and regions.
Doughnut economics offers us a vision of an economy where the ecological planetary boundaries have been interconnected with the United Nations sustainable development goals. Doughnut economics was introduced by the economist Kate Raworth in her book Doughnut Economics – 7 ways to think like a 21st-Century economist.
The idea of Doughnut Economics has been developed into tools to be applied at the local level. Local level application has been piloted around the world in numerous cities. In Finland the council of Tampere region has analysed the current state of sustainable development in their area using Doughnut Economics tools.
