“In the midst of the Covid-19 crisis, there has been increasingly vocal public support for a focus on wellbeing as we recover and rebuild the UK economy. In this webinar, we want to ask what a wellbeing economy is, and whether it is compatible with a gender-equal economy. We will explore lessons learned from the experiences of Wales, Scotland and New Zealand with regard to wellbeing, and what the potential pitfalls of a wellbeing economy might be, from a gender equality perspective.
Join Dr Katherine Trebeck (Wellbeing Economy Alliance) Rachelle Earwaker (Joseph Rowntree Foundation) Dr Angela O’Hagan (Wise Centre for Economic Justice, and Natasha Davies (Chwarae Teg) as they discuss the concept of a wellbeing economy, and reflect on lessons learned from Wales, Scotland and New Zealand. Chaired by Rebecca Omonira-Oyekanmi (investigative journalist).
