How do we design economic policies that put the wellbeing of people and the planet first?

This is the challenge that the Wellbeing Economy Policy Design Guide aims to tackle – and since the Guide was published, one year ago, it has inspired action around the world. 

Four WEAll hubs are undertaking pilots to bring the ideas in the Guide to life and work with their communities to design wellbeing economy policies through participatory processes. The experiences of the pilot teams will form the basis of resources and tools to expand the existing Guide and which can be used by others working to implement Wellbeing Economy Policy Design.

Join us to celebrate one year of impact since the launch of the Policy Design Guide, learn about the progress of the policy design pilots, and be part of the conversation about how we can continue building momentum towards wellbeing economies. This event is co-hosted by WEAll and our partner ZOE Institute for Future Fit Economies.

There will be two identical events at 15:00 and 21:00 UTC, scheduled to accommodate the time zones of the pilot projects teams and allow the maximum number of interested people to participate.

    As, there are also other pre-coronavirus non-communicable pandemics in public health affecting the Wellbeing Economy and Public Eye-Health issues, effectively excluding a significant proportion of age diverse UK Human Resources in education (30%) and, impairing performance, exhibited in presenteeism and productivity by around 20% or one day a week at a cost of £9k plus in the workplace resulting from slow adoption of UK and International Accessibility Regulation Statements, implementing prevention and/or mitigation of early onset eye-strain, screen fatigue or CVS for 58% of DSE Operators presenting with visual repetitive stress injuries / monocular 2D adaptations, myopic and asthenopic disease.

    Both the NHS & RSPH have introduced exposure control nudge campaigns around the same time as Accessibility Reg’s 2018 and 2019 just prior to COVID pandemic however, no sign of Accessibility Maturity Reporting as yet in education as part of No One Left Behind or Even Leveling-Up Schemes sort of omitting the functionally illiterate and diverse at a 4 to 7 fold increased risk of early onset eye-strain by comparison with fluent readers 20-20-20 vision breaks on-screen in the workplace.

    Commission research has been undertaken by and Southampton University but limited to WCAG 2.1 Accessibility Reg’s developing a minimum validation for a Colour Contrast Matrix for digital e-learning website developers but, as yet, as far as we know the only clinical trial for companion ISO 30071.1 DSE Colour Contrast Calibration is being undertaken by ourselves following the development of a Digital Accessibility Tool-Kit enabling literacy of the functionally illiterate in the early 2000’s and following the ISO 45001, ISO 45003 & recent ISO 31405 now undertaking a POC for use as “Colour Vision Therapy” for rehabilitating myopic, asthenopic disease resulting from over-exposure to the near indoors exacerbated by standard unmitigated very-high contrast display screen operator-equipment calibration.

    Globally the introduction of “Binocular Vision” assessments in early childhood is gathering momentum but, so far, patients are limited to solely traditional last century VT founded on eye-exercises from eye-patching and pencil push-ups to Brock-Sting or more barbaric and ineffective “cosmetic surgery” to realign the eyes.

    Whilst commercially, correction by prescription of glasses and conventional VT sustains many opticians practices with 50% more teenagers now mirroring symptoms of myopic and asthenopic disease presenting in DSE operators in the workplace so, from a Public Health perspective especially in the Educational arena will the UK also promote Digital Eye-Health alongside the Decade of Health Campaign going forward?
