WeAll is made up of Foundation for the Economics of Sustainability (Feasta), the European Health Futures Forum (EHFF), Social Justice Ireland, Cultivate: The Sustainable Ireland Cooperative, the Playhouse Theatre in Derry/Londonderry, and individuals including Peter Doran of Queen’s University School of Law in Northern Ireland. WeAll aims to: > Shift popular narratives around the purpose of our economy > Synthesise, disseminate and empower knowledge and evidence about what a ‘wellbeing economy’ looks like and how we can embed its principles and practices at all levels of governance and societal systems > Galvanise an island-wide and inclusive platform through a creative intergenerational/intercultural dialogue while engaging with a global network of peers > Draw on the island’s unique cultural, linguistic, intellectual and ecological resources to inspire ‘wellbeing economy’ narratives in support of local and global responsibility for re-embedding our lives, livelihoods and systems within the social and ecological space defined by the ‘planetary boundaries’.
