Featuring UK-based Dr Katherine Trebeck, a central figure in the global Wellbeing Economy Alliance launched in New York City last year, and co-author of the new book ‘The Economics of Arrival: Ideas for a grown up economy’.
With special guests Damon Gameau, award-winning director of the film ‘2040’ and before that ‘That Sugar Film’, and Mike Salvaris, director of the Australian National Development Index, and global leader in the development of wellbeing measures, including work in progress here in WA. In conversation with Anthony James, host of The RegenNarration podcast.
While everyday economics has assumed all growth is good, the richest countries already have plenty of wealth and resources — they have ‘arrived’. The Economics of Arrival urges us to move from enlarging the economy to improving it, exploring the benefits this could bring for all, and how it can be done.
Hot on the heels of the Wellbeing Budget in New Zealand, just the latest in a raft of key developments around the world, join us in this vital interactive conversation with three of the key figures in the space. We’ll explore how we change systems, stories and measures, to transition to a regenerative economy geared towards quality of life rather than quantity of stuff.
'The Economics of Arrival: Ideas for a grown up economy' is the new book by Katherine Trebeck and Jeremy Williams, with a foreword by Kate Raworth (best-selling author of 'Doughnut Economics: 7 ways to think like a 21st century economist). The book will be launched at this event, with book signings and complementary drinks available.
