For this method, factsheets were developed that show the municipal problem areas, solution strategies and fields of action in the areas of agriculture & food, economic development and housing & construction. All three factsheets start with the basics of donut economics, which can be summarised in seven principles for new economic thinking, and a methodological explanation of the impact matrix. In a subsequent problem analysis of the topic, the municipal challenges in the respective area are described. In order to visualise possible solution strategies, a four-field table is used, which, according to the donut economy, includes the social and the ecological dimension on a local and global level. The impact matrix is used here to visualise which of the solution strategies could have the most immediate and strongest impact for the community. The factsheets end with the presentation of already existing municipal initiatives that meet the donut criteria and serve as inspiration for other municipalities to implement a sustainable transformation.
