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.
