What’s kept you busy in February?

  • Bringing new and committed members to the network. Engaging members even more in the different working groups
  • Creating and giving form to WEAll Slack working space. I’m positive this will bring  more transparency and easiness in our way of working together.
  • Helping some of the WEAll Members their communications around the NESI Forum. It’s being helpful to facilitate resources to promote the Forum but to meet and catch up with all of them. Thank you!

February highlight:

  • Bringing Slack into the network’s collaboration’s dynamics so our way of work together will be easier, more transparent and useful for everyone.

March priorities:

  • Mapping Hubs – The creation of a Hubs Guide
  • Continue organising WEAll TALKs where members can share and learn from each others
  • Hopefully getting WEAll Youth started in Spain

What’s kept you busy in February?

  • A Parliamentary launch of WEAll Scotland at Holyrood. It was co-hosted by the Scottish Future’s Forum and the Economy, Energy & Tourism Committee and attended by Members of the Scottish Parliament of all stripes and a range of WEAll supporters – businesses, civil servants, civil society organisations (pictures, a write up and my introductory talk are here:http://scotlandfutureforum.org/scotland-2030-a-wellbeing-economy/)
  • A trip to London for the meeting of the Advisory Committee of the Centre for Understanding Sustainable Prosperity which is always fascinating and inspiring. Added in some meetings with WEAll members such as the Rapid Transitions Alliance & Action for Happiness – so good to see folk in person!
  • Finally being in a position to being work on our outputs pipeline and plans – basically the synthesis products (in all shapes and sizes) that we want to pull together in order to build a coherent body of theory and practice about a wellbeing economy

February highlight:

  • More people joining the WEAll Research Fellows Networks (we’ve got a great team, but it is a little a reflection of my contacts, so please do suggest names for people beyond the UK!). Folks’ reactions to the invitations has been a nice reminder just how many good people there are who want to work together to make the economy more humane and more sustainable.

March priorities:

  • Shaping up some funding proposals with WEAll Scotland and for the narratives cluster
  • Getting on with work on those synthesis papers!
