Building unstoppable momentum towards a Wellbeing Economy

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

  • 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).
