COVID-19 has opened a unique opportunity for the adoption of new economies throughout the planet. There are clear signs that change is happening and we need to generate collaboration to promote the transition and the co-creation of a better future. In April 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, the Amsterdam City Council voted to embrace Doughnut economics to shape Amsterdam’s post pandemic future. In June, the city council of Copenhagen committed to turning into a Doughnut City - a good life for all within planetary boundaries. Dozens of other cities and towns worldwide have indicated they are also interested in embracing Doughnut economics. Additionally, there are a range of other economic models are emerging that are supporting regeneration of planet and people, all of which replace Gross Domestic Product and capital accumulation with human wellbeing as the central focus of policy and ecological systems and constraints as the framework for action. These commitments demonstrate very exciting and bold examples of leadership in how we can transform the crisis of the pandemic into an opportunity for human renewal.
- Today begins a seven-day program to explore the economics of the future.
