Can the economy be redesigned with the purpose of serving the wellbeing of people and the planet first and foremost? Around the world business leaders, government agencies, and citizens are moving beyond the focus of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and economic growth as being the primary markers of success and are instead shifting their thinking towards other indicators that could contribute to a healthy economy.
Join international expert Dr Katherine Trebeck in a discussion on why a wellbeing approach to measuring success and progress for the economy is gaining momentum and what it looks like in practice. Drawing on insights from overseas, Dr Trebeck will examine what various sectors can do to help build a wellbeing economy. She will share some examples of actions that other cities have been taking which demonstrate what a wellbeing economy means at the city-level and will discuss the implications and benefits this approach could bring.
