Wellbeing Economics Beyond GDP – Dr KatherineTrebeck webinar
Dr Trebeck discusses what a wellbeing approach looks like in practice across different sectors and different levels of government, the implications for cities and districts, and she shares examples of wellbeing economy practices in action.
Can we redesign the economy so that it works for the public good and delivers wellbeing for people and nature the first time around, rather than patching up and repairing downstream? Around the world decision makers and citizens are moving beyond GDP as the measure of success and transforming how healthy economies are thought about.
