The Leeds Doughnut started up in 2021, to bring integrated thinking and doing to the movement for city scale change. It was born out of the National Lottery funded Climate Action Leeds programme, which works for a zero carbon, nature friendly, socially just Leeds by the 2030s. Within that, the Leeds Doughnut's vision is of a city where people and planet thrive.
April 2022 saw the publication of the first Leeds Doughnut City Portrait, a full research report and summary document setting out a sketch portrait of how Leeds is doing against the various dimensions of the Doughnut's 4 lenses. The report was launched at a packed-out full day event, with a diverse audience taking part in discussion, workshops and activities exploring what the findings mean for Leeds. Find the reports here:
