Greening Our City: Making City Growth Sustainable and Just: The Doughnut Economics
Cork Chamber has teamed up with SHEP Earth Aware, Green Spaces for Health, Cork Healthy Cities and the Environmental Research Institute, UCC for this informative webinar series to showcase examples from other countries and discuss the many ways we can make Cork a greener city!
This webinar will provide an introduction to the idea of Doughnut Economics and will feature Dr. Declan Jordan of Cork University Business School.
Declan will take a broad view of “greening”, (in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals) and will focus on the approach of “Doughnut Economics”, and its application at city level along with the many challenges it brings.
Recently a number of cities in Europe and America have followed the lead of Amsterdam in seeking to implement this vision at city level. Cork may be able to learn from their experience. (See article in Time magazine, Feb. 2021, HERE).

Declan's research interests include innovation, regional and urban economics, competitiveness, and innovation and enterprise policy. He has published widely in these areas in international peer reviewed journals. Declan is currently a member of the Editorial Board of REGION, the journal of the European Regional Science Association (ERSA) and an editor of the early career section of Regional Studies, Regional Science.
