What we do
We’re working with others to create unstoppable momentum towards a Wellbeing Economy: an economic system that ensures everyone can live with dignity, experience fairness and connection, and participate in the decisions that affect them – all while we protect the health of our planet.
Our vision is of an economy designed to deliver good lives for all
on a healthy planet.
In a Wellbeing Economy, we would prioritise policies that meet our fundamental human needs – not endless GDP growth for its own sake.
How we'll get there
Redesigning our economy will take action at all levels of the economic system. Inspired by Frank Geels’s work on transition theory, we seek to transform the context and paradigm we operate in, the policy that shapes what’s possible and the grassroots level where innovative practice takes place.
