Zusammenfassung & Show Notes

In this episode we are joined by Catherine Trebeck, an advocate for economic system change and co-founder of the Wellbeing Economy Alliance. Catherine shares her journey from working in international trade to advocating for a wellbeing economy, inspired by a conversation with a lecturer who encouraged her to look upstream and question the political economy. Catherine reflects on the power of understanding our common humanity and the importance of recognizing our shared needs and values. She emphasizes the need for a broader base in the economic change movement and the importance of making connections between our common human needs and the economic system. Catherine envisions an economic system that delivers collective wellbeing for people and the planet, where businesses are owned locally, energy systems are renewable, housing is energy efficient, and prices reflect the true costs of goods. She encourages us to recognize and celebrate our common humanity and to lead with empathy, compassion, and solidarity.
