Our Mission

The Institute of Wellbeing seeks to build a network of people who actively challenge existing notions about economics and who wish to live in a world in which people use and share resources wisely and fairly. Given a planet with limited resources and a limited capacity to absorb waste, it is important that we reduce resource use and seek direct approaches to improve wellbeing. This requires reducing inequality. Rather than make choices between health, the environment, and economics, we seek to promote solutions that will improve all three: healthier people, a less polluted environment, and strong local economies, as well as vibrant communities and happier people.
