Let op! Dit programma is niet in Pakhuis de Zwijger. Het vindt plaats bij Circl, het circulaire paviljoen van ABN AMRO.

Join renegade economist and doughnut creator Kate Raworth, deputy mayor Marieke van Doorninck and more than 100 circular economy initiatives in the region on the journey towards a new, future proof economy. And follow the afternoon workshop to see how your own business can fit within the doughnut.

Amsterdam is doing well, but not everybody is able to profit. The city is growing, there’s growing competition for precious space. Do we still have enough green areas? Where do we leave our waste? Can we call a halt to food waste and air pollution?

Our current economic system seems to be aiming at producing, consuming and discarding. Consumption and production within the city has its impact on the whole world. How do we keep our neighborhoods and cities livable, sustainable and safe for everybody?

Big ambitions
Amsterdam has big ambitions. In 2050 the city aims to only use clean energy and reuse all of its resources. How do we do that? And what do you want the Amsterdam metropolitan area to look like? What developments inspire you? Join in the conversation.

Doughnut economy
In order to realize its ambitions Amsterdam has teamed up with Kate Raworth to form a framework to apply the principles of the doughnut economy in the city. During this conference Kate Raworth and deputy mayor Marieke van Doorninck will elaborate on this framework that fits economic activities between a social foundation and an ecological ceiling. This should create a safe and just place, where society can flourish without harming our planet. The framework should deliver the building blocks for a circular economy.

Doing business within the doughnut
After this day you’ll know everything about the doughnut economy, you’ll meet circular economy initiatives within the region and in the afternoon workshop with Kate Raworth you’ll get to know what it takes to make your own business fit within the doughnut.

Be part of the doughnut movement in the city and join this sizzling melting pot of doughnut enthusiasts.

Amsterdam omarmt deze gedachte en lanceert samen met Kate Raworth en Circle Economy tijdens WeMakeThe.City de ‘city doughnut’; een stappenplan om de metropoolregio donut-proof te maken.

Tegelijkertijd kunnen alle 116 circulaire initiatieven uit Amsterdam en verschillen mooie projecten uit de regio elkaar ontmoeten. Bedrijven, onderzoekers, creatieve en startende ondernemers en overheden komen samen in een levendige marktplaats met speeddates, zeepkistpresentaties en verdiepende sessies om verbindingen te leggen en ook in de praktijk met een brede blik aan de slag te gaan.

En je kunt jouw eigen onderneming onder de loep nemen in de middagsessie met Kate Raworth. Zorg dat je erbij bent.
