Our vision is for an economy determined by humanity, not the other way around. A wellbeing economy is designed with a different purpose: it starts with the idea that the economy should serve people and communities, first and foremost.
Scotland is a key player in the global movement for a wellbeing economy. Across Scotland, the purpose of the economy and the dominant model of growth is being reconsidered, with pioneering projects springing up across different sectors.
WEAll Scotland will connect these initiatives, amplify narratives and support a critical mass of change makers. Check out the latest updates below to see how we’re doing this.
The event was attended by around 100 individuals from across Scotland, bringing a range of expertise and ideas.
WEAll Scotland is coordinated and run by: Una Bartley, Sarah Deas, Bob Downes, Jock Encombe, Doreen Grove, Lisa Hough-Stewart, Ellie Logan, Karen Moore Davidson and Katherine Trebeck.

WEAll Scotland is a founding member of the international Wellbeing Economies Alliance and has strong links to the Wellbeing Economy Governments initiative.
The Wellbeing Economy Alliance Scotland (WEAll Scotland) established in 2018, aims to bring about a new economic purpose: shared wellbeing on a healthy planet.
It represents a cross-section of Scottish society (public, private and civil) working to address social injustice and environmental harm at root cause.
We are distinctive in terms of the diversity of our work and the sectors we represent, yet united by a belief in the need to re-orientate our economy towards wellbeing for our people and planet.
