What’s going on elsewhere in the world

The systemic approach of the BrusselsDonut project is inspiring. In fact, this project is one of the rare initiatives to be coordinated by an association in close contact with the Region (through Barbara Trachte’s Cabinet) and with players on the ground. 

The ambition is to work both on a quantitative dimension with the Portrait of the Region and on a more qualitative dimension with the support of local players, be they public, private or associative.

Initiatives elsewhere in the world

The Doughnut is also making headway outside our borders. A whole community of the Doughnut economy has thus formed around the world. It now has nearly 5000 members.

This community is supported by the DEAL (Doughnut Economics Action Lab): this is the team surrounding Doughnut founder Kate Raworth whose goal is to support all Doughnut initiatives that emerge in the four corners of the globe.

Other networks explore, test, exchange and mobilize to take a step, then a second, then a third…, towards a society where the economy is embedded in the social and environmental dimensions, rather than the other way around.

The C40 is a global network of mayors taking urgent action to address the climate crisis and create a future where everyone can thrive.

NetZeroCities is a European network of cities integrated into the European research and innovation programme Horizon 2020 as part of the European Green Deal. It aims to help cities overcome the structural, institutional and cultural barriers they face to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030.
