Wellbeing training day

Saturday, April 25, 2015

Are you interested in how we can guide policies towards improving wellbeing, not just increasing economic growth? This free interactive day will introduce our work on wellbeing and how this fits within our work on resources and environmental limits. It'll also provide an opportunity to take part in a trial wellbeing workshop. Groups are already running such workshops with great success - they're bringing in new people and creating new initiatives, campaigns and alliances for a better future.
