Fearing a global recession, world leaders are developing plans to stimulate the economy. But existing policy ideas are built for another time. During this period of crisis, we must abandon the old metrics of economic progress and listen to what people need.
This is a time to ask what is really important to us. What can we live without? What is critical for our wellbeing? This moment of pause has brought increasing clarity to the value of food, health, income security, education, mobility, access to nature, social connection and public services.
We must not return to business as usual. We have an opportunity to build back better
Join Jamie Cooke, Head of RSA Scotland, and Dr Katherine Trebeck, Advocacy and Influencing Lead at the Wellbeing Economy Alliance (WEAll) as they discuss the opportunities for economic restructure post Covid-19.
After the discussion there will be an opportunity to ask questions and debate the issues.
