Catalyst Trust was approached to take part in a Dunedin Wellbeing Economy Workshop being held by the Wellbeing Economy Alliance Aotearoa and instead persuaded WEAII country lead Gareth Hughes to extend his national roadshow to Queenstown.
WEAII is a collaboration of organisations, alliances, movements and individuals working to transform the economic system to one that works for people and the planet.
Hughes’ focus is what people around the country want the economy to be and how we can build an economy that builds the public good and puts the wellbeing of people and planet first.
He will be sharing the collective findings and people’s stories with politicians at the Economy for Public Good Conference August 31 at AUT in Auckland.
Interesting conversations to be had and great timing for the election!
Catalyst Trust shoulder tapped and invited applicants from the Catalyst network to take part, ensuring a deep and broad range of knowledge, perspectives, experience and community links.
Among the 13 community representatives are people with backgrounds in technology, regeneration, community support networks, Council strategy, independent science research, Māori economy, trade sector, tourism, governance, cultural sector, food rescue, academia, community advocacy and Whakatipu High School leadership.
We look forward to hosting Gareth when he presents his findings to a broader Catalyst Trust audience in September.
Date and venue TBC.
