Scotland is leading the way in building an economy that works for people and planet, with pioneering businesses, community groups and civic society working to support a transition towards a Wellbeing Economy.
However, there is still some way to go to embed the concept of a Wellbeing Economy into policies, practices, and economic activities, and respond to the opportunities and challenges that arise, not least due to the unfolding cost-of-living crisis and the efforts to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Wealth of Nations 2.0 conference will allow delegates to:
KNOW: the progress Scotland (and the world) has made to deliver a Wellbeing Economy
FEEL: excited about the progress being made, and motivated to accelerate this further
DO: make clear commitments to play your part in delivering a Wellbeing Economy
- Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister, Scotland
- Officials from the WEGo nations
- Fiona Duncan, Chair, The Promise
- Gerry McCartney, Professor of Wellbeing Economy, University of Glasgow
- Miriam Brett, Political Economy Expert
- Satwat Rehman, Chief Executive, One Parent Families Scotland
The event is co-hosted with Carnegie UK, the University of Glasgow and Community Enterprise in Scotland (CEIS).
