This event, jointly organised by Feasta and the Cork Environmental Forum, explored the potential for community-focused banking to help reorient the Irish economy in a healthier direction.
This collective exploration of our response to COVID-19, the phenomenon of enforced absence, and our need for basic sustenance was organised by Afri, Feasta, Irish Seed Savers and Maynooth University.
This groundbreaking webinar included speakers from Wales, Germany and Ireland's Central Statistics Office, and included discussion of legislation for well-being, and also of the potential benefits of developing an aggregate well-being index alongside a dashboard-style set of well-being indicators.
Through a combination of interview-style conversation and small-group discussion, this event on December 7 will explore the mental health and emotional toll of our increasing awareness of climate change and environmental destruction.
