The aim of the Beyond Growth Symposium is to provide a new vision for operationalizing fisheries in a wellbeing economy.
With the post pandemic era compounded by the cost of living crisis, ever-present climate change and heightened inequalities, questions are being raised about the nature and balance of our economic systems that are predicated on perpetual expansion. Reallocating resources and re-calibrating existing systemic excesses into societal needs-based policies that support regeneration of the natural world, re-distributing economic activity more equitably and fostering respect for community development is called a wellbeing economy. Building a wellbeing economy requires embracing new ways of thinking, actively engaging in widespread systems innovation to generate real progress toward a healthier world and thriving lives for all.
Join us and other scientific, policy and industry leaders as we explore a new vision for operationalising fisheries in a wellbeing economy and the multi-dimensional pathways to get there.
