We need an economic system that helps all life thrive

The prevailing economic model, deeply rooted in colonial influences, relentlessly pursues constant material growth through a linear “make, use, dispose, repeat” process. This pattern generates waste, damages the environment and neglects justice and equity.

Within this traditional model, crucial aspects of life, including people and nature, are often considered “externalities.” This approach perpetuates overconsumption, waste and environmental crises and makes clear the pressing need for social justice initiatives.

What might an alternative model encompass? One that values and sustains nature while enhancing key priorities like health, shared prosperity and wellbeing. A wellbeing economy, driven by purpose and regeneration, places people’s wellbeing at the forefront.
