Economics of Happiness conference, 19-21 October 2018

An international Economics of Happiness conference, co-hosted by Local Futures and Happy City, will bring prominent thinkers, activists and innovators to Bristol from 19-21 October to debate the creation of a new economy that supports flourishing lives and a thriving planet.

Moderated by writer and broadcaster, Jonathan Dimbleby, the conference will explore and explain how we can shift direction from a globalised system of inequality and environmental degradation towards local cultures and economies that put wellbeing and resilience first.

Internationally-recognised experts will come together with local leaders and activists for three days of plenary talks, panel discussions and workshops on the global-to-local theme. Topics include the economics of local food systems, the role of business in a wellbeing economy, the future of cities and the regeneration of community.
