A chance to debate what is meant by Wellbeing : June 17 conference at Brathay

Wellbeing seems to me a seductive, but troubling concept. At the very least its meaning ought to be debated.  Hence we can but encourage folk to attend the following event. Indeed I’m going to offer a paper, ‘Towards Wellbeing : A Collective Social and Political Task’ or ‘I cannot be well if you are not well!’ See you there perchance?


Wellbeing Conference Tuesday 17 June 2014

What is the link between wellbeing and resilience?
How can we ensure sustainable wellbeing?
