Details

The way we create and measure progress in our economies around GDP is leading us down environmentally, socially and personally destructive paths. Most visible in developed economies, more GDP does not translate into more well-being.

This is the first live session with special guest, Kate Raworth, known for her work on "doughnut economics", and Lorenzo Fioramonti, known for his work on Well-being Economies.

How can we measure progress toward generating sustainable and inclusive economies that create well-being for all (people and planet)?
