The webinar will serve to bring the concept of wellbeing economy to the debate in the EU. By presenting several perspectives, it will contribute to the debate on the post-COVID recovery and reconstruction at the level of the EESC.
The current health crisis caused by the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic exposed the fragility of governments' policies narrowly geared by the pursuit of economic progress measured solely by the GDP growth.
The full impacts of the pandemic on the economy, environment and society will have to be examined and assessed over the coming months. This exceptional time is an opportunity to start a collective reflection on shifting the policy priorities in the EU and setting up a framework for a wellbeing economy.
