Measuring what matters: What a wellbeing economy can do for all Australians
The George Institute for Global Health invites you to our #GeorgeTalks webinar: “Measuring what matters: What a wellbeing economy can do for all Australians” on Thursday 11 August 2022 from 12pm to 1pm.

In July 2022, the Treasurer of Australia, the Hon. Jim Chalmers MP, announced the Albanese Government’s intention to include a wellbeing chapter in the October 2022 Federal Budget. This is the first time the Commonwealth Government will have implemented a wellbeing approach to economic policy in Australia.

But what exactly is a wellbeing economy and how does a wellbeing budget relate to it? Join us as we discuss how a wellbeing economy might improve social, health and environmental outcomes and what should be the initial focus of the October budget.

We will be joined by a panel of domestic and international experts:
• Dr Katherine Trebeck, Co-Founder, Wellbeing Economy Alliance and WEAll Scotland
• Dr Richard Denniss, Chief Economist, The Australia Institute
• Dr Cressida Gaukroger, Senior Policy Adviser – Wellbeing, Centre for Policy Development

Aug 11, 2022 12:00 PM in Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney
