Designing for a wellbeing economy
Around the world, there’s growing focus on how to improve a country’s wellbeing through the sustainable growth and distribution of financial, social, human, and environmental capital. How might we create an economy that has wellbeing outcomes and is sustainable, but still generates the resources we need to address the challenges we face?
Mentally Friendly present an entertaining, and perhaps surprising, evening of mind-nourishing talks to interrogate the potential for business, government, and communities to drive wellbeing for our society. This event is for anyone who’s interested in applying human-centred designs and systems with a view to improving Australia’s wellbeing.
In keeping with this year’s theme of ‘ACCESSING DESIGN’, Mentally Friendly aim’s to tackle the following question: How might we design an economy that creates wellbeing outcomes?
The term ‘wellbeing outcomes’ is understandably a little unclear and also hard to define or measure. Is a country’s GDP an accurate indication of the wellbeing of its citizens? Probably not. So what are ‘wellbeing outcomes’, how do we measure them, and most importantly, how could we use design to co-create a system that prioritises our collective wellbeing as the key indicator of success?
Come and find out.
