We are delighted to be part of the Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL) community and to be registered as an organisation in action. This has come off the back of us working as Sustainability and Quality of Life consultants for a large scale regeneration project in Cambridge, named Core Site. This ambitious project will create a new district in north Cambridge delivering approximately 5,600 homes along with shops, workplaces, education, community and leisure facilities and open spaces.

The process involved us undertaking an analysis of key social and environmental concerns at the global, local and neighbourhood level. To respond to these challenges we were inspired by Kate Raworth’s Doughnut Economics, which sets out a visionary framework for the 21st century economy. Her vision is simple: meet the needs of all people without exceeding the limits of our planetary boundaries, allowing for a shift to a regenerative and distributive economy. This led to us developing our own doughnut for Core Site.

We are excited to share our learning and stories of applying the Doughnut Economics framework with DEAL to inspire and provide learnings for others.

Follow our updates on the DEAL page to hear our stories and learnings from applying Doughnut Economics at Core Site:
