A Doughnut Workshop in Barcelona.

Local governments in action

Pioneering places around the world are turning Doughnut Economics into practice. Local governments at many scales - from villages to megacities - are adopting the tools and concepts of Doughnut Economics in order to help bring about a thriving future. DEAL’s Cities & Regions work focuses on supporting these administrations, experimenting and learning together on many journeys of transformation. This page gives an overview of what Doughnut Economics means for local governments, what are the core concepts and tools to get started with, what other places are already doing and what DEAL can do to support you.
