This project aims to explore the legal, policy and governance reform pathways that can support regenerative and distributive economies. It will focus on action-oriented participatory research within ‘Regen’ cities in Australia (Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane) through active community dialogue and deliberation with the framework of ‘doughnut economics’.

Through a combination of community workshops and industry roundtables, the project will identify localised dimensions of doughnut economics, bring to life key narratives supported by community stakeholders, highlight existing professional routines and practices, and explore publicly acceptable policy solutions. The outcomes will provide a foundation for a 3-year detailed project on a ‘city portrait’ of Greater Sydney, with the long-term vision of creating a platform for linking research, community and public sector perspectives to promote regenerative economies focused on supporting and measuring wellbeing.
