Resurgence Festival of Wellbeing
Day 1: Sat 10 Oct 2015 • 10:00-18:00
Day 2: Wellbeing in Action at Friends Of The Earth, The Printworks, 139 Clapham Road, London SW9 0HP
From Economic Growth to Growth in Wellbeing
A sense of wellbeing is what really matters in life. We need a new movement of awareness and action to bring meaning to life and to put community wellbeing at the heart of political and social decision-making. Instead of economic growth, we need growth in wellbeing. The festival of wellbeing will explore these ideas - expect inspiring speakers and entertainment.

Festival of Wellbeing Day 2
From 'wellbeing in words' to 'wellbeing in action'
Discussion Day and Workshop
Sun 11 Oct 2015, 10:00-16:30
Venue: Friends Of The Earth, The Printworks, 139 Clapham Road, London SW9 0HP
Following on from the main festival day event we are offering participants an opportunity to get involved in a second day of discussion focused on wellbeing in action.
To help create the shift from a world focused on economic growth to a world focused on wellbeing and ecological sustainability, we need to change habits and mind-sets as well as business practices, policy and fundamental systems. We all have skills, expertise, passion and drive that can influence our communities and our society for the better.
Day two of the festival will be in an interactive workshop format that will allow discussion, group work and networking around different aspects of personal, community and societal wellbeing. Experienced facilitators will bring people together in smaller groups to discuss ideas and look at how we can harness our own expertise and passions to inspire wellbeing in action.
The day is being organised by the Network of Wellbeing and offers an opportunity to share and compare your ideas, your projects, network with others and to explore what we have learnt from the first day of the Festival of Wellbeing. Places are limited and must be booked in advance.
Please note that the venue for the discussion day is different from the main festival event on the Saturday. Sunday venue: Friends Of The Earth, The Printworks, 139 Clapham Road, London SW9 0HP. A more detailed programme for the discussion day will be available for participants shortly before the event.
This event will raise money for The Resurgence Trust, an educational charity (no. 1120414).
