Activity: Public engagement and outreachContribution to the work of non-academic organisations


YouTube video for the Wellbeing Economy Alliance ( Description as follows:

Curious about the connection between psychology, social change, and the Wellbeing Economy? Mick Cooper, Professor of Counselling Psychology at the University of Roehampton breaks it all down for us in this video, and explains why he thinks the Wellbeing Economy is a cutting edge development for the field of psychology.

The Wellbeing Economy is about creating a world in which everyone has the capacity to thrive: where human (and planetary) needs are put at the centre of policies rather than economic growth. But what does it actually mean to thrive, and what is it that human beings really need and want? It’s the kind of question that seems simple enough when you first think about it, but gets more and more complex the deeper you look.
