The WEAll Amp team

The small team working full-time for the Wellbeing Economy Alliance is not a secretariat – it’s an Amplification team.
We’re here to amplify the work of others in the movement for a wellbeing economy.

Want to work on building the wellbeing economy? We’re currently recruiting for a Fundraising Officer – see more info and apply here.

Ana has put down some roots in her home country of Spain to be part of the WEAll team, after almost two decades of travel. She has worked on sustainable livelihoods and eco conservation projects around the world, from Canada to New Zealand. Previously, she  worked at Centro Cultural de Idiomas (CCI).

Michael Weatherhead

Development and Practice lead

Michael lives in Spain with his wife and son, after moving from South Africa where he was international director of the consulting arm of NEF. He holds post-grad qualifications in economics and organisational development and loves blending rigorous analysis with innovative approaches to opening up  learning spaces and finding solutions. Luckily there’s no dip in his wellbeing from moving to Spain  given the kitesurfing and biking options available near Malaga!

WEAll Global Council

The Global Council was formed in early 2019,  and aims are:

  • To ensure that there is a coherent transparent strategy across all of the WEAll clusters and hubs
  • To ensure that the activity that is being carried out is in line with the values of WEAll
  • To support the work and capacity of the Amp team by providing oversight of the whole network.

The council is currently chaired by Stewart Wallis, and its members are a mixture of representatives of WEAll clusters and local hubs, and pan-alliance members.
