Wealth Economy Foundation Workshop – Growing prosperity: sustainable stewardship

Wed 24 November 2021

Via Zoom

Society currently faces a range of interconnected challenges. Whether it is recovering from Covid-19, reversing the biodiversity and climate crises, or preparing for automation and an ageing population, it has become clear that previous economic strategies are no longer fit for purpose.

This workshop, run by leading Cambridge economists, Professor Diane Coyle and Dr Matthew Agarwala at the Bennett Institute for Public Policy explores these challenges and looks at practical ways for decision-makers – in government at any level, advisory bodies, civil society organisations, or business – to steer this path.

They will explain in depth the Bennett Institute Wealth Economy approach and how inclusive wealth consists of many interconnected capitals – including human, social, natural, and physical. It is the management of this comprehensive portfolio of assets that determines whether organisations and communities are able to steward and grow organisational and national wealth, resilience and sustainability, rather than depleting the assets required for future prosperity.

You will receive practical inspiration for how the Wealth Economy Framework can be used in the public and private sector and participate in stimulating conversations to better understand how its different components can be applied to your organisation, and what effect this will have in achieving more prosperous, resilient and sustainable growth.

This half-day workshop will give you:
- A theoretical and practical understanding of the Wealth Economy approach and framework
- A clear action plan of how to bring Wealth Economics into your day-to-day decision-making
- Interactive conversations, activities and solution building with fellow participants
- A toolbox including a guide, case studies, resources, useful links and contacts

This workshop is particularly suitable for all decision-makers at any level of government, advisory bodies, civil society organisations, and business. The workshop has a limited number of places to ensure high-quality discussions and interaction. Early booking is advised.

The course leaders, Professor Diane Coyle, Dr Matthew Agarwala, Dimitri Zenghelis and Dr Saite Lu, are experienced in advising public and private organisations, from local and national government in the UK to the World Bank and United Nations.

This workshop will be delivered online via Zoom. Prices available via the University of Cambridge online store.

Cost: Early bird, public/private sector prices available
