Political strategies under the magnifying glass of the doughnut
What do we mean by 'strategy'?
It is about all the policy measures that can be taken, at regional or local level. We want to explore, together with political representatives and members of the administration, to what extent the political strategies adopted in Brussels fit into the doughnut. That is to say, how they take into account all their impacts: not only economic but also social as well as ecological, local as well as global.
In early 2022, the Brussels-Capital Region published its regional economic transition strategy, “Shifting Economy“. This strategy is fully in line with the principles of the donut economy, as it aims to refocus economic activity within the limits of the planet, while respecting human well-being. The strategy covers a range of sectors essential to economic life in Brussels: trade, digitisation, health, food, renovation, mobility, etc.
