November 6, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
On 6 November 2020 the Think Tank of Young Economists organized a consultation meeting in Dutch debate center Pakhuis de Zwijger with selected young professionals. The group consisted of approximately 25 participants. The group was very diverse, with participants from public entities, private entities, ngo’s, non-profit’s, and activists.
Central topic was the idea of moving towards an economy where well-being rather than economic growth is the central goal. The meeting started with a short presentation by and Q&A session with former Dutch prime minister Jan-Peter Balkenende. Subsequently the participants discussed what needs to change in
- the finance sector,
- climate policy and
- the public sector
to realize this desired transition towards a well-being economy.
