Climate Action Leeds
Leeds Love It Share It is supporting Our Future Leeds to deliver part of the National Lottery funded Climate Action Leeds. This work involves setting up a central climate action hub in Leeds city centre, creating a training plan and developing the Leeds Doughnut (see our other project). Climate Action Leeds is facilitating community-led climate action to allow the city to act together on the climate, nature and social emergencies.
The Leeds Doughnut
Leeds Love It Share It is working with Our Future Leeds to create the Leeds Doughnut. Based on the work of Kate Raworth, we are working to develop the doughnut model in Leeds. The Doughnut is a model for establishing sustainable economic thinking that allows humanity to thrive in the 21st century.
Birmingham Doughnut Project
Following the success of the first Leeds Doughnut City Portrait in April 2022, three of our core researchers - Catriona Rawsthorne, Irena Bauman and Jenni Brooks - contributed expertise to the development of a Neighbourhood Doughnut Portrait for the Ladywood area of Birmingham, led by Civic Square. This enabled knowledge sharing and ongoing learning within the Doughnut Economics Action Lab community. You can read more on the Doughnut Economics Action Lab website or download the Neighbourhood Doughnut report.
