The Cambridge Doughnut Economics Action Group (CamDEAG)
We are a community group in Cambridge who are planning the Cambridge Doughnut project. We are building relationships with local government and other key organisations to help deliver this vision for Cambridge as a more just and environmentally sustainable city.
We seek to adopt the Doughnut Economics approach for the city ensuring that life’s essentials (access to nutritious food, decent housing, etc.) are afforded to all those who work and live in Cambridge without surpassing the climate and ecological boundaries of the planet.
Principles of Practice
We aim to follow the seven principles of practice of doughnut economics in all we do as a group.
We adopt the values of Kate Raworth’s Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL) for the way our group works.
