Can you imagine a new economy that was based on environmental health and social justice - and uses measures other than Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to measure community well-being?
New Zealand's Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern (my new hero) recently said,
"What greater threat is there to our wellbeing than the current threat of climate change? ... GDP may say your country is thriving, but it's not thriving if it's also degrading the environment and contributing to CO2 emissions."
Last week a group gathered at Gang Gang cafe in Downer to discuss establishing a Canberra Hub of the New Economy Network Australia.
The group will meet on a regular basis with a focus on information sharing.
Find out more about NENA or join the Canberra Hub.
