The Wellbeing Economy Governments partnership (WEGo) is a collaboration of national and regional governments interested in sharing expertise and transferrable policy practices to advance their shared ambition of building Wellbeing Economies. WEGo was founded on the recognition that ‘development’ in the 21st century entails delivering human and ecological wellbeing, and currently comprises six national governments: Scotland, New Zealand, Iceland, Wales, Finland and Canada.
WEAll was involved in the creation of WEGo, and since then the group operates independently, with the Scottish Government providing Secretariat support for the group. WEGo governments are at different stages of the journey, but as members of WEGo they have committed to:
Collaborate in pursuit of innovative policy approaches to create wellbeing economies – sharing what works and what does not, to inform policymaking for change.
Progress toward the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in line with Goal 17, fostering partnership and cooperation to identify approaches to delivering wellbeing.
Address the pressing economic, social, and environmental challenges of our time.
This guide has been co-created by the Wellbeing Economy Alliance (WEAll) to support visionary policy makers, to build more just and sustainable economies for people and planet.
