Webinar: Taking the leap into the wellbeing economy
April 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The South African Events Council and Event Greening Forum are proud to announce that the distinguished academic and world renowned proponent of the concept of a wellbeing economy Professor Lorenzo Fioramonti will be the guest speaker at our upcoming webinar.
Prof Fioramonti is a distinguished academic, world-renowned proponent of the ‘wellbeing economy’, as well as a sought-after and captivating speaker
During this webinar, he will talk on: Taking the leap into the wellbeing economy – redirecting the economy toward community, the environment & a sustainable future.
The Covid pandemic has made clear that there is no economic success without social wellbeing, which is founded on the health of people and ecosystems. When we imperil wellbeing, we demolish any economic activity, resulting in more poverty and destitution.
For over a decade, Prof. Fioramonti has been advocating a new theory and practice called “wellbeing economy” to demonstrate the shortfalls of our obsession with economic growth and to place personal and ecological wellbeing at the centre of development policy for governments and business alike. In this talk, he will discuss many tangible examples of how the “wellbeing economy” is the only way forward to achieve a sustainable and equitable future, as well as happier and healthier lives.
His talk will be followed by a Q&A session.
