The journey of the Amsterdam Doughnut Coalition by Jennifer Drouin and how Doughnet Economics has it’s impact on sustainable ICT by Wietze Kleisterlee.
As the community manager of the Amsterdam Doughnut Coalition, Jennifer Drouin has made it her mission to facilitate the people of the region of Amsterdam on a journey to become a socially just and environmentally safe community within the boundaries of our planet.
In her 15 minute talk she will explain what the doughnut economy is about and how the city of Amsterdam has embraced this new economic model from a top down and bottom up perspective and how you as a student and/or teacher can become part of this movement.
Wietze Kleisterlee will present in 15 minutes how the model of Doughnut Economics could be used to arrive at sustainable ICT. The session ends with questions & discussion.
As a student of ICT in Business and the Public Sector at Leiden University, Wietze Kleisterlee sees how difficult it is for IT departments to define and measure their level of sustainability. To make this easier for IT management, Wietze looks at the well-known Doughnut model. This model is now focused on a global perspective, but with his research Wietze wants to make a translation to a departmental level and set up the model in such a way that it can be used by the IT department to measure the sustainability level. During the lecture, Wietze will present how the model of Doughnut Economics could be used to arrive at sustainable ICT.
