Wellbeing Economy
Governments (WEGO)

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. Membership of the group has grown organically since its launch in 2018 and currently involves the governments of Scotland, Iceland, New Zealand, Wales and Finland, with Canada actively participating.

“The role of government in transforming how our economies operate cannot be underestimated. So, governments at all levels are natural partners for the Wellbeing Economy movement.”
- Katherine Trebeck WEAll Co-Founder

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.
