In 2017, the government of the region of Extremadura, in Spain, one of the most rural and peripherical regions of Europe, set out to investigate other possible futures based on a green and circular economy in the horizon of 2030. I had the honour of coordinating a team that developed a research proposal from Territorial Innovation to promote a 2030 Ecosystem for the Green and Circular Economy in Extremadura
. aligned with the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs, in a work that combined the Donuts approach with Resilient Thinking (Stockholm Resilience Centre), the principles of the Transition Network, regenerative design and others, to offer a holistic approach to transformation this territory.
So far this work has not had any significant impact in the Extremadura region.
