Saturday May 4th, 9:30-4:30 - Venue: Methodist Hall, Totnes
Maximising Wellbeing - a workshop for community activists
There is lots of talk about happiness and well-being at the moment but what do these words really mean? This one day workshop looks at these concepts through the lens of fundamental human needs as outlined in the work of barefoot economist Manfred Max Neef.
- How can we design a project or social enterprise so that it maximises well-being?
- How can we find the leverage points to turn a good social enterprise into a great one?
- Can we gain insights into well-being that can help us identify new social enterprises or gaps in the market?
- What processes or activities make it easier for ourselves and others to change behaviour?
Can we measure well-being? And if so, how can we create ways to increase it?
What you will gain is a new language with which to communicate the value of your project, a deeper understanding of what motivates people's decisions, tools with which to assess the impact your project is having, or can have, on your community's well-being and a renewed sense of inspiration...
