HEADING TOWARDS A FAIR AND SUSTAINABLE SOCIETY

FROM JUNE 29TH TO JULY 1ST, 2022 – GRENOBLE, FRANCE


In 2018, the International Forum for Well-Being “Wealth, happiness, what indicators to build tomorrow ?” brought together for 3 days more than 1,000 participants from 25 different countries around the question of a new “compass” of society. A first in Europe! Testimonies from all over the world have made more visible and concrete a vision of development based on well-being, and no longer on purely economic considerations. Building on this, Grenoble will host the second edition of the International Forum for Well-Being in June 2022, going one step further to initiate a systemic transformation. This event is part of the Grenoble European Green Capital 2022 program.

This forum is the result of a collaboration between local authorities (Grenoble-Alpes Métropole and the city of Grenoble), members of Grenoble universities (Université Grenoble Alpes and the Economic Peace Chair of GEM) and civil society with CCFD-Terre Solidaire and the FAIR collective (Forum for other wealth indicators).

In relation with Doughnuts Economics, the aims are:
1. to accelerate the transition towards a new compass
2. to translate well-being into action and indicators, between the environmental ceiling and the social foundation
3. Support, develop and nurture the actors of change community
