This event focussed on a Social Imaginary project which the WEAll Hub of Ireland’s core members have been discussing. The project is a co-production process – a community of practice of artists, activists and researchers exploring how we might imagine the wellbeing economy.
In 2021 we co-organised six online events that explored banking, basic income, biodiversity and the new WEAll hub for Ireland, we made a series of submissions, continued our successful podcast series with EHFF, published many blog articles, and sent a sizeable youth delegation to the COP-26.
