RESHAPING THE ECONOMY                        

Join us and 249 others who want to reshape our economy to deliver wellbeing for nature and all our people. 

At the Economy for Public Good Conference, we’ll weave a shared purpose for moving beyond a broken ‘business as usual’ economy.

If you’d like to build bonds and share ideas with people inspired to progress past GDP, and create an economy where people and nature thrive, this one-day hui is for you.

Together we’ll learn from te ao Māori approaches, harvest global doughnut, degrowth and circular thinking, celebrate local wellbeing and business success stories and learn practical skills.

With international keynote from Amanda Janoo, WEAll’s Global Policy Lead, MC’d by Michèle A’ Court and inspiring presentations by New Zealand thought leaders, in-depth breakout sessions covering a range of diverse areas, and a political panel asking the tough systemic questions of politicians six weeks before the election, the Economy for Public Good will herald new thinking at this critical time.

This one-day event is a for all of us wanting to mend the economy so it serves society and our natural world – community leaders, policymakers, activists, economists and businesses doing good - all welcome.

Tickets for this in-person conference are set at only $100 and numbers are limited – register today.

Why is WEAll Aotearoa organising the Economy for Public Good Conference?
2023 is election year and the economy will be front and centre. It is a crucial time for New Zealand to ask how the economy can work for the public good - a future in which we can all thrive.

Across Aotearoa and around the world people realise economic progress is more than simply Gross Domestic Product or growth from any source. The mark of an economy that really works, is that it works for people delivering a good life for everyone, in a way that is truly sustainable so future generations can also thrive.  Around the world, governments, communities, and businesses are developing new economic approaches to halt damage to the environment and restore it. 

To solve the big challenges of our age - from climate change and biodiversity loss to inequality and social cohesion - we need to lay down new economic tracks. 

The Economy for Public Good Conference is designed to connect a diverse range of thinkers across Aotearoa on a platform to talk about systems, solutions, new ideas and policies; and to celebrate where this is already happening in our businesses and communities.

Who should attend the Economy for Public Good Conference?
250 attendees from across New Zealand are expected to attend. This will include policymakers, economists, local and central government elected representatives, members of the business, academic and community sectors, students, and NGOs. We’re inviting policy and social influencers to attend to connect with other leaders in their fields.
