Welcome to the Leeds Doughnut

Are you interested in how Leeds can become a thriving and safe place for everyone?

Leeds Doughnut Report.png

We hope this will be useful in Leeds and beyond - for researchers, policy makers, politicians, social entrepreneurs, community activists and residents.

We have used the Doughnut approach to create a portrait of the state of Leeds right now.


The summary document summarises a longer more detailed report.

Doughnut Economics is a framework, developed by Kate Raworth, that introduces a new way of thinking which can help us tackle the complex local and global challenges ahead, together.

We see the Leeds Doughnut City Portrait as part of a bigger conversation about how we respond to climate change - how we protect nature, live a zero carbon way of life, and leave no one behind.

The Leeds Doughnut City Portrait is our first step towards creating a city plan that will enable us to create a zero carbon, nature friendly, socially just Leeds by the 2030s.

The Leeds Doughnut is a project of Climate Action Leeds, a National Lottery funded project promoting community led climate action. 

The Doughnut approach is a way to think about how a place can meet its local aspirations while also living up to its global responsibilities.


This approach has been taken up by people all across the world, and is supported by the Doughnut Economics Action Lab.
