How we can build a ‘wellbeing system’ – rather than a welfare system – to achieve sustainable social justice and well-being for all?
An important part of the Great Transition will be building a well-being system – rather than a welfare system – that is fit for the twenty-first century. That system will aim to achieve sustainable social justice and well-being for all. How will it do that? What resources and mechanisms should it deploy? And what policies will be required to enable it to achieve its goals? This working paper begins to answer these questions.
Written by Anna Coote, head of Social Policy at NEF, with additional input from Professor Neva Goodwin, Co-Director of the Global Development & Environment Institute, Tufts University.
