Resurgence Festival of Wellbeing
Sat 23 Sep 2017 • 10:00-18:00
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.
