Launch of Leeds ‘Doughnut Economics’ City Portrait & city planning process (Past)

Sharing findings from our first city portrait, practising doughnut activites, connecting key city change-makers.

During this event we will collectively explore the question: ‘How can Leeds be home to thriving people, in a thriving place whilst respecting the wellbeing of all people worldwide and the health of the whole planet?’ 
Our launch event exploring the groundbreaking approaches of Doughnut Economics is set to be a day of fully interactive group activities to imagine this new future for Leeds, with workshops and discussions on what a safe and thriving Leeds means for everyone in practice.
Hosted by TV and radio broadcaster Peg Alexander, with key headline addresses from Leonora Grcheva, Cities and Regions Lead at the Doughnut Economics Action Lab, and Imandeep Kaur, Co-founder and Director of CIVIC SQUARE, Birmingham.   We’ll hear from doughnut experts from the city strategic level down to the neighbourhood scale to understand the power of the doughnut in action, as well as present our first Leeds City Portrait report. 
The event is primarily taking place in person at the city centre location of Open Innovations, from 9.30-5pm (lunch provided) with the afternoon dedicated to putting all of this into action, where you will get to test the doughnut process with real life examples, together.  To join us in person, sign up here. 
[In person spaces are limited so please only sign up if you are able to join]. 
The morning session from 10-1pm will also be available for you to join us online. To join us online, please sign up here.

We really hope you can join us for a day of cross-sectoral, city-wide collaboration, network building and collective action on transforming Leeds to become a safe and thriving city!

    A while back I read Kate Raworth's book, and heard her speak at the University of Leeds. Everything made total sense, now hooked!
