Brown Bag Session: Wellbeing Economy, Success in a World without Growth
The latest MILE Brown Bag session hosted by MILE in partnership with eThekwini's Economic Development Unit featured acclaimed political economist Pro​f. Lorenzo Fioramonti who discussed his latest book Wellbeing Economy: Success in a World without Growth.

The session took place on the 20th of June 2017 at the MILE Boardroom with EThekwini Municipal officials from various departments. MILE champions gathered during lunch time for Prof. Fioramonti’s talk which challenged them to think far beyond the global financial crisis. 

“The Wellbeing Economy is about participation, communities being more involved in growing the economy. It’s about creating jobs in a dignified way, spending time with the community, engaging and learning. Keeping the money within communities, by providing a platform to be productive,” said Prof. Fioramonti. 

During his talk Prof. Fioramonti indicated that a better society can be built if individuals put wellbeing first. According to Fioramonti a Wellbeing Economy is a manifesto for radical change in South Africa. It would have tremendous impact on everything, boosting small businesses and empowering citizens as the collective leaders of tomorrow.
