A ‘wellbeing economy’ sounds like the sort of economy that might not ruin everything, and in that sense we are very much behind it. But it also sounds like the sort of thing that we don’t really know what it is.
HOWEVER, this week’s guest – writer, researcher, and advocate for economic system change Dr Katherine Trebeck – very much *does* know what it is, and is spearheading efforts to get Governments to actually prioritise wellbeing.
We sit down with Katherine to find out where this all sits on the scale of Goldman Sachs to Kum Ba Yah, and how people can get involved in making it a reality.
SPEAKING OF WHICH, please sign this splendid petition asking the UK govt to put the health of people and planet first https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/580646
Find out more about the Wellbeing Economy Alliance at weall.org and check out Nicola Sturgeon’s Ted talk on why governments should prioritise wellbeing, as mentioned by Katherine, here https://www.ted.com/talks/nicola_sturgeon_why_governments_should_prioritize_well_being
