The City of Amsterdam has committed to becoming a 100% circular economy by 2050, and in early 2020 the City launched its new Circular Economy Strategy, which was created with the Doughnut
as a core design tool.
Juan-Carlos Goilo is Senior Information Specialist at the City of Amsterdam, leading the City's work on turning the Doughnut into a practical set of indicators for monitoring the city's transformation, especially in relation to creating a circular economy.
In this 21 minute presentation Juan-Carlos describes how the City is turning the Doughnut model into a practical framework for the City, by building a data monitor on the principles of the Doughnut, and building a data-collection system that will reflect the emerging circular economy in the city.
This presentation was first given by Juan-Carlos Goilo at a Circular Economy workshop
organised by the City of Hamburg in May 2020.
