Why our Ambassadors are supporting WEAll
Having experienced socialism and capitalism, the time has come to create an economy for the common good which overcomes both extremes. Luckily, there are many alternatives! They all – we all consider money and capital as means and people and the Planet as values whose wellbeing is the final goal of all economic activities.
As our economic systems run into the planetary buffers, we face such a stark and obvious choice. Rather than going on as we are and facing a continuous deterioration in the human future as the planet becomes unable to sustain us, let us take up the real and tantalizing opportunities to make the change that can provide a genuinely better quality of life for everyone.
Both my scholarship and my campaigning and activism come from a desire to change the world – creating, globally, economies and societies that are focused on the most essential outcomes, the wellbeing of people and planet.
We are currently spending our earth’s resources 1.7 times faster than its ecosystems can regenerate, and it is predicted that by 2030 we will be using two earths’ worth of resources. These numbers that are currently predicting our common fate, can be fought only by the numbers of those who seek change, and create, change. The well-being economy is already in existence, and it is growing stronger by the day, out of sight of indexes and surveys. So let us create a butterfly effect, catapulting this movement, based on knowledge shared and informed choices, to reach far and wide.
The way we have measured success as individuals and societies, has come out of fear and disconnection. Imagine the possibilities if we started operating more and more out of love and connection
