March/April 2014

Welcome front cover
Small is the New Big

A sense of wellbeing is what really matters in life, and this should be at the heart of all politics. The UK is the sixth-richest country in the world, yet many people don't feel a sense of contentment, fulfilment or satisfaction with life. Government ministers, bankers, business leaders, media and our economists continue to chant the mantra "economic growth, economic growth and more economic growth". We never stop for a moment to think and ask the question: Is this endless economic growth sustainable? And what after all is the raison d'être of the economy?

We need a new movement of awareness and action that puts community wellbeing, instead of economic growth, at the heart of politics. In this issue we look at positive changes that could lead to healthier people and a healthier planet.
