In this All Party Parliamentary Group on Wellbeing Economics event, Professor Tim Jackson, Lord Robert Skidelsky and Anna Coote will discuss whether economic growth is essential to our wellbeing in the short- and long-term; whether it is possible to move to another economic model where growth, as currently understood, is unnecessary; and how we could we achieve greater wellbeing under such a model.
