System Change - towards a Wellbeing Economy
Move from an Scottish economy based on the idea that economic growth can help address our climate or our inequality problems to one that is based on directly ensuring the wellbeing of people and planet.
Why the contribution is important
As David Attenborough pointed out on the BBC on 8 October - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-54268038 - the idea that greed leads to joy is a mistake, and endless economic growth sets us up for environmental collapse.
And in 2018 Scotland declared itself a Wellbeing Economy Nation - along with Iceland, New Zealand and more recently Wales. See as a starter Nicola Sturgeon's challenging TED Talk 19 Sept 2019 at https://youtu.be/gJzSWacrkKo
Hope we can join up these themes and look at the bigger picture beyond personal behaviour change. What systems need changing and how?
