The Doughnut was first published in 2012, proposing a social foundation and ecological ceiling for the whole world. Over the past eight years there have been many innovative initiatives exploring different approaches to downscaling this concept to apply into towns or countries. the Amsterdam City Doughnut, takes this global concept and turns it into a tool for transformative action in the city of Amsterdam. This is a great place for launching this tool because this city has already placed the Doughnut at the heart of its long-term vision and policymaking, and is home to the Amsterdam Donut Coalition, a network of inspiring change-makers who are already putting the Doughnut into practice in their city.
