Community Action Nelson is hosting a free information evening with members of the Aotearoa Hub of the Wellbeing Economy Alliance including Justin Connolly, Prof Paul Dalziel and Dr Suzy Morrisey.
The Wellbeing Economy Alliance (WEAll) is the leading global collaboration of organisations, alliances, movements, and individuals working together to transform the economic system into one that delivers social justice on a healthy planet.
New Zealand is one of the three founding members of the Wellbeing Economy Governments (WEGo) initiative along with Scotland and Iceland.
The Wellbeing Economy Alliance is a 10-year project that aims to catalyse systems change toward the realisation of a Wellbeing Economy. WEAll does this by linking and coordinating activity at all levels of the Wellbeing Economy movement, to create a critical mass of people and organisations working toward a common vision.
A global movement is coalescing among a large number of individuals and organisations around the need to shift economies to one broadly focused on ‘sustainable wellbeing’. They may have used different approaches and different languages, but all share a common goal.
The aim is to promote the Wellbeing Economy as the destination that all diverse efforts are working toward.
