About the event
Doughnut Economics is a groundbreaking set of ideas that can support our journey to a socially just, zero-carbon and nature-friendly Leeds by the 2030s. The Leeds City Portrait is our first snapshot of where the city is at and will help us start our city planning process. The Leeds Doughnut team is a growing network of people across the city who want to support this transition and is part of Climate Action Leeds.
Our launch event is set to be a day of fully interactive group activities to imagine this new future for Leeds, with workshops and discussions on what a safe and thriving Leeds means for everyone in practice. We’ll hear from doughnut economics experts from the city strategic level down to the community scale to understand the power of the doughnut in practice, as well as present our first Leeds City Portrait. The afternoon will put this all into action where you will get to test the doughnut process with real life examples, together. We will be joined in-person by DEAL's Community and Arts Lead, Rob Shorter.
We want as much of your input as possible - and lunch is provided, of course!
