Held in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, at AUT, Numbers are limited for this in-person only event

This conference will be the first in New Zealand’s history focusing on redesigning our economic system to deliver for the public good. Highlighting the range of modern economic approaches from Māori, Wellbeing, Ecological, Circular, Doughnut and Degrowth Economics this one day event will be a must attend for change-makers, policy-makers, economists, businesses doing good and anyone who wants systemic change to address the most pressing challenges Aotearoa faces.

The Wellbeing Economy Alliance’s global Economics and Policy Lead Amanda Janoo will deliver the keynote presentation and comedian Michèle A’Court will act as the event MC. With a range of inspiring presentations by thought leaders, in-depth breakout sessions covering a range of diverse areas, and a political panel asking the tough systemic questions of politicians six weeks before the election, the Economy for Public Good will herald new thinking at this critical time.
