According to the World Economic Forum, “progress on climate action and sustainability could be a significant casualty of the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis,” but Amsterdam has a recovery plan – and it’s green and doughnut-shaped. It’s called “doughnut economics” or an economic model that envisions “a world in which people and planet can thrive in balance.”
As part of the COVID-19 recovery process, The Netherlands plans to incorporate green programs, improve inequalities, rebuild better, change the method in which industries operate, and overall become more self-sustainable. The goal is that nobody should be left in the middle of the doughnut hole and be lacking in the basic essentials of life, such as clean water, healthcare, and education.
